The Wyton House Compton started life as John Compton Organ Company’s Opus A293, and was built for the 2,750-seater Astoria Cinema in Southend, UK. John Compton was already highly regarded as an innovative builder of classical organs when the cinema organ craze hit the UK. He was the first UK builder to produce unified organs and the John Compton Organ Company built more than half of the cinema organs in the UK. In 1930 they were installing three cinema organs a month, at the same time as producing some notable classical instruments.
With John Compton's background he wanted to produce instruments that would do justice to music in diverse styles and his larger instruments are equally at home playing cinema organ classics or large symphonic works such as Berlioz's Hungarian March and Widor's Toccata. Over the years, Compton organ owners have also benefited from his classically influenced mechanisms, which are simpler and more durable and reliable than those of other builders.
