:The Elusive English Organ
Between about 1550 and 1830, some of the most beautiful
In the documentary The Elusive English Organ, Daniel Moult sets out to perform this repertoire on appropriate organs of the time. But this is by no means straightforward. Many organs have been destroyed or changed beyond recognition. The Reformation, the Civil War and the Victorian zeal for rebuilding took a great toll on this country’s original organ heritage.
Therefore, to accomplish his goal, Daniel has to journey
to some surprising places: private chapels, country houses,
even a trip to France. In doing so he finds some of the few
remaining English organs built between 1550 and 1830.
