The Early English Organ Project

Collegiate Church of St Endellion Handel House Museum The Williams Wynn Organ

Martin Goetze and Dominic Gwynn set up the firm in 1980 to help revive the interest in the classical tradition in British organ-building, to revive interest in pre-Victorian British organ and choral music, assist congregational singing and provide a suitable instrument for modern liturgies.

• we make new organs in the classical British styles, using traditional materials and manufacturing techniques.

• we make chest and chamber organs in classical British and other styles for use by musicians in the Early Music world, and to encourage the use of appropriate organs in recording and concert performances.

• we restore historic organs, trying to preserve as much of the original organ as possible.

• we add to knowledge about old British organs by carrying out archaeological surveys and making their research publicly available, in the Harley Monographs and elsewhere.

• we develop knowledge about traditional techniques of organ building, and train young organ builders.

• there are some educational films around the restoration at St Botolph Aldgate, made by David.Allen and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

In these activities we are supported by the Harley Foundation.
