The organ at St Martin's has been converted from a pneumatic to electro-pneumatic system. It also incorporates a new Taylor piston capture system of the latest design. The organ has been re-built by the former Director of Music/Choirmaster - Trevor Tipple MBE and is considered to be an outstanding example of its type – used for recitals and concerts. Organ scholars have been taught at St Martins and many now hold posts associated with church music. As part of the restoration, the instrument has been enlarged to 34 speaking stops. To mark the Centenary of St Martin’s a 6-bell Zimbelstern was added.the detailed specification can be found on our Organ Technical Specification page.
The Director of Music/Organist, is in charge of the choir of males and females - all ages and musical abilities. This choir leads the singing at St Martin’s for choral services and weddings, on request, and has the luxury of being accompanied by the best parish organ around.
