 The Organ

The organ is the original instrument installed by Norman & Beard in 1907. It was a gift from Lady Smiley of Gallowhill and cost £996. It is unique in that it was voiced by one of the original partners of Norman & Beard at a time when they would have been creating over fifty instruments a year. Norman & Beard went by many names through their years as a trading company, with major accomplishments such as building the organ housed at Edinburgh's Usher Hall. They also were the manufacturer of the Christie organs famous for their accompanyment of Silent Films.


It is a Grade 1 listed instrument by the British Institute for Organ Studies, and is of note due to its casing again designed by McLennan.
