George has been Organist of St John-the-Evangelist Kingsdown since 1984.
main Organ is a historical 2-manual mechanical action installed in the church in 1881 by the local Organ Builder F H Browne. From the time of its Inaugral recital it has been noted for its beautiful tone and the quality of its individual pipe ranks. The
Great 'Open Diapason 8' creates a remarkable sound, and its guilded spotted metal pipes form the Display Rack at the front of the instrument.
It is clear that the
organ was not origially built for this location and some of the pipework is much older. Its actual origins still remain something of a mystery and are constantly being investigated.
