Dean Close Case From West

Cheltenham – Dean Close School

Nicholson & Co.’s new organ with mechanical key action for Dean Close School, in Cheltenham, was completed in the autumn of 2014.

Singing the daily services in Tewkesbury Abbey leads the preparatory school’s choristers on to learn organ at the Senior School and from there to win organ and choral scholarships. The new organ, of English tonality, has the power to lead congregational and choral singing as well as being a resourceful teaching and recital instrument.
