Moving a ca1830 Pilcher chamber organ to the City of London School

We moved a ca1830 William Pilcher chamber organ to the City of London School.  It used to belong to Edward, and has been bought by Justin Berg, an American musician and musicologist.  His plans for it have been put on hold, so it has spent a few months in St Peter Vauxhall while we were restoring the Lewis organ there, and has now been loaned to the City of London School.  It is a delightful house organ by a little known organ builder.  Pilcher was also known as a piano maker, and this organ has a keyboard which was originally intended for a piano, which may partly account for its five octave compass.  The keyboard is hinged and folds up when not in use.
