Gerard Verloop has written a new booklet about the Pilcher chamber organ now at Zuid Scharwoude in the Netherlands. It will presumably become available from the church’s online shop at http://www.koogerkerk.nl/winkel/winkel.htm
Gerard Verloop’s thoroughly researched history is the main attraction of this attractive organ, one of the last to be built in a Georgian style. Not many domestic organs have such a complete story, the star being a watercolour of one Macdowall sister playing the organ to the other in the drawing room of their house in Baker Street. Tragically, the musical sister had died just before the delivery of the organ.
