MUSIC ON THURSDAYS LEATHERHEAD'S 12.30 LUNCHTIME CONCERTS
1970 Hill, Norman & Beard Organ
Christ Church (United Reformed)
Christ Church (United Reformed), Leatherhead
The Christ Church Organ was built by Hill Norman & Beard in 1970. Its 16 stops used some pipes from a Lewis organ formerly in Dorking's now demolished Deepdene House, a Gern organ from another private house, plus some neo-baroque sounds typical of the 1960's and '70's - Chimney Flute and Fifteenth on open-foot voicing, similar to the Royal Festival Hall organ.
In 1995, HNB moved some louder stops from the Great to a new double case in the nave, 6 stops were added, and the tone of the instrument was refined.
In 2015 the ranks in the nave cases were re-voiced to give a fuller tone.
Here is the Hill, Norman & Beard organ's specification:
