This book provides a comprehensive survey of English organ building during the most innovative fifty years in its history. Between 1820 and 1870 a number of influences--musical, technological, architectural, social, and liturgical--combined to bring about a radical transformation in the design and use of English organs. Dr. Thistlethwaite considers most of the major church, cathedral, and concert organs built during this period, and there are valuable sections dealing with business organizations and workshops, the provision of organs in chapels and churches, and the questions of performance practice. The book is richly illustrated with photographs and diagrams. In addition, Dr. Thistlethwaite provides an extensive bibliography and an invaluable appendix of organ specifications, making this an indispensable documentary source book for all those, professionals or amateurs, who have an interest in the organ.
