Edward has retired on his birhday!

Edward Bennett finally retired from full time organ building on August 13th, and his colleagues, friends and the craftspeople of the other Harley Foundation workshops assembled to celebrate his tremendous contribution to the art and craft of organ building, and to the four decades of instruments produced by G&G at Welbeck.  Edward was 73 on August 18th, and Dominic 68, and we met on Dominic’s first day organ building in Northampton, 46 years ago.  One of the rewards of organ building is that its products exist to be admired and appreciated, and Edward retires with justifiable pride in 52 years of work, conscientiously and beautifully done.
