While on holiday in the west of England in the last week of July, I gained access to a pipe organ in a former Methodist chapel. The feeling of airiness in this high-ceilinged space after months of lockdown in a small London flat was uplifting. It was enhanced by the sound of air rushing through the pipes of the instrument. I set up mics close to the organ and high up at the back of the room, and made some recordings.
Recorded 29 and 31 July, 2020. Assembled 2-9 August 2020.
