    Another of me playing the 2 manual 3 rank Compton 'Miniatura' organ at All Saint's Church, Clayton West near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

    Im playing the hymn 'Deep in the darkness a starlight is gleaming' to the tune 'High Point' which gives the opportunity to show off the different tone colours available on this instrument.

    Many thanks to organist Jonathan Newcombe for allowing me access to this little gem of an instrument.

    NOTE: this is purely my interest in order to make sure that these fine organs are archived forever and I do not make any monetary profit by this video being on youtube.

    REQUEST: I am always on the lookout for Compton organs to play - particularly electrones - so if you know of any churches which still have these then please do let me know. I will happily give a donation or pay any applicable room hire charge.
