Noel Mander Chamber Organ [Back to Library]

Producer: Sesquialtera VPOs
Builder: Noel Mander
Country: United Kingdom
Manuals: 1
Pedalboard: No
Audio Ouput:
Date Built:


This chamber organ, built by Noel Mander, is a wonderful example of his work. It is currently at St. Peter and St. Paul church in Bromley, UK. It is a great continuo instrument, suitable for accompanying a choir, performing solo pieces, or being used as part of an ensemble. The keyboard lifts up and can be shifted to the left by one semitone to make it transpose to A=415Hz instead of its natural A=440Hz tuning.

Both the Stopt Diapason 8 and Flute 4 are of stopped wooden 'rohr' pipe form in the trebles and the Principal 4ft borrows the lowest 6 pipes from the 4ft flute. However, in the sample set, the bass Principal pipes have been replaced to complete the full compass.

The organ sample set is available in 6 channels - Dry (sampled directly in front of the organ), Front (about 6 meters away), and Rear (about 15 meters away). Dry is especially ideal if you want to imitate what the instrument could sound like in your current room; the other two perspectives as it sounds in the church itself from different proximities. The key/stop action and blower were also sampled for the best realism.

The sample set is completely free to download and use, so if you enjoy using it, please consider donating - all donations will go to the church's music department.
