Continuo Organ

Franz Heissler 2000, (1/5 mech)

From OHTA News January 2001:

In late 2000, Newington College at Stanmore took possession of a chamber organ built by Franz Heissler, of Bad Mergentheim in Germany. The instrument was acquired through Roger H. Pogson who arranged its delivery and assembly at the college. Designed for use among the school's many small ensembles and orchestras, it is contained within an oak cabinet, faced either end with grillework: the blower is also contained within the cabinet. Interesting features of the organ are the division of all stops at middle C and the flexible Mixture stop, which is graded from a single rank in the bass through to the three ranks in the breble - at the treble end it is also possible to engage the 1-1/3' rank of the Mixture separately.

The specification is:
