Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

NEW ORGAN FOR THE CHURCH

We have been very delighted to receive a new organ in the Conventual Church, the gift of two anonymous members of the Order of Malta to the Grand Priory of England.

The electronic organ was installed on 15th January, and blessed before Mass that evening by Father Christopher Colven, Rector of Spanish Place church.

It was first played for Sunday Mass on the occasion of Bishop Hopes' visit for Fr Sloan's installation, since when it has greatly enhanced the solemnity and beauty of the liturgy, and is used to accompany the sung offices of Lauds and Vespers for the members of the Grand Priory.

It is a three-manual Content organ made in Holland, supplied by Classical Organs of St Austell, Cornwall.
