Pipes from the Market Bosworth organ photographed through the case of the new organ at the Parish Church. This organ is based upon the original Porritt pipework with digital pedal stops added to the original bourdon


Members enjoy supporting helping others whilst trying organs with invaluable registration changes and page turning, evidence pictured here at Market Bosworth


Two members Paul Stringfellow and Ian Watts sneaked off during the Leeds trip to play the Edmund Schulze organ at Armley (immortalised as a Hauptwerk sampleset), courtesy of Professor Graham Barber who kindly hosted them and demonstrated the instrument
