This recording is of the very wet Hereford organ from Lavender Audio. The recording is done through HW. I'm just getting used to the organ and have not felt the need to "tweak" any of the voicing's so far.

This organ in this environment has a really big sound. It's also strikes me as having a sort of "dark" character. It's quite easy to pull on too heavy a sound. It will take some getting used to. (I do however very much like a "dark" sound, by the way.)

I've just begun to explore this instrument. At this point, it's no surprise, that I find it very well suited for hymns. I shall explore this further.

Also, this is another one of those organs that offers a pitch setting of "Original Organ Temperament." I have used that here. It provides just the right amount of "out of tune" feel, IMO.
