    Oakham School, England

    Just idly curious...does anyone know the history of the organs at Oakham School? I believe there are a few posters here from that area.

    When I was at the school in the late 70s/early 80s, there was a three-manual electronic (I don't know the maker) - the first instrument I played, in fact, and from memory not a bad one as electronics of the period go. That's since been replaced by a fine-sounding pipe instrument by Peter Collins.

    But what was there before the electronic? The school chapel was built in the 1920s, I believe, so there must have presumably been a pipe instrument from then until the 1970s.
