Reigate – St Mary Magdalene’s Church

Starting in April 2017, we will be undertaking a complete restoration of the 1911 Norman & Beard organ in St Mary Magdalene’s Church, Reigate.

The action is to be converted from pneumatic to electro-pneumatic throughout. The existing en fenêtre is to be restored without alteration to its playing aids or period appearance. A new mobile console of modern Nicholson & Co. design, with a full complement of modern playing aids, will be added.

In the 1960s, Hill, Norman & Beard replaced a Vox Humana on the Swell Organ with a Larigot 11/3‘, and replaced a Cor Anglais on the Choir Organ with a Block Flute 2’. The Larigot is to be discarded, and a second-hand 1910 Norman & Beard Vox Humana will be restored and installed in its place. The Block Flute has been found to complement the tonal scheme so will be retained.
