St Peter’s Caversham Reading 2015
St Peter’s Caversham is a delightful church situated close to the Thames just north of Reading. The pipe organ was removed in 1987 when a 2 manual Copeman Hart was installed. This gave good service for almost 30 years when there were concerns as to its reliability.
We were amongst 6 companies approached and 3 who made the short list providing our first quotation for a digital organ in the September of 2014. A critical component of the invitation involved using a console made by Renatus of Bideford with whom we do most of our custom consoles. They are rightly regarded as joiners and cabinet makers of very high quality.
We were selected as preferred supplier early in 2015 when the church committee gave much consideration to the speaker location and our suggestions had been an important part of the final decision process. In 2015 we installed a new 3 manual instrument that you see in the photograph. You can read more about this installation in the blog post.
