Chris Lawton at the organ of St Clement’s Church, Urmston: There is a green hill far away

Another of me playing the Compton organ dating from 1960 installed at St Clement’s Church in Urmston, Manchester. The video starts with a picture of an original brochure advertising the Compton 357 model featured in this video. After this there are a few shots of electrones under construction at the Compton factory in Acton, London. Then im playing the hymn “There is a green hill far away” which shows off the quieter sounds on the organ including the very beautiful Clarinet stop in the second verse. Many thanks to Alan Crossland for allowing me access to this fine instrument.
