Organetto

This organ is currently under construction. It is not a copy of any particular historic organ but takes its inspiration from a number of small portable and table organs that were made in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries. It contains a single rank of stopped wooden pipes that cover the range of a baritone voice and is basically designed to help a singer to pitch his notes or learn a tune.


It is made of English Oak (casework) and Scots Pine (pipes and action) with ebony naturals and ebony/lemonwood sharps. The upper casework is modelled on a Roman temple and the facade is made of rock maple.
