This morning I received comments on my desk from our organ repairer. He notes that our Bevington organ "dates back to 1891". This means that it is several years older than our Church, and possibly the oldest working machine on Cape Town's Atlantic Seaboard. OBSERVATION: Our repairer notes that our organ is doing "amazingly well considering age". However, ten large pipes have vibrated out of their fixings, some pipes are not getting enough air, and (not important) our vibrato has been dead for years.
