Joseph Cullen’s ca1850 Glasgow Chamber Organ Restoration

The organ was saved by Joseph Cullen (organist and choral conductor), and kept with the intention of being restored as a practice organ. It is ideal for this purpose, as it has two manuals and pedal, with full compasses, all in the case of a large chamber organ. The organ was restored by Christina Reinspach and Dominic Gwynn in the summer of 2003.
