Van Vulpen organ relocated to Guildford
This beautiful organ was crafted by Van Vulpen of Utrecht in 1980 for the the zorgcentrum “Open Vensters” in Ameide. The organ case in solid oak is rich in detail. Since the organ is hardly used anymore, it was offered for sale. A new home was found in the Royal Grammar School of Guildford.
On monday January 9th the organ was transported from Dordrecht to Guildford and all part were unloaded into the music room. The next day the organ was assembled and the pipes were placed on the wind chest, the voicing checked and all pipes tuned.
