Do any of my friends know of a school chapel or church looking for a new organ? We have to find a new home for this beautiful little one manual and pedal by Hey Orgelbau. It's only had 2.5 years' use and is immaculate. Will last for centuries. Long story but it's tied up with Brexit...

Offers in the region of £45,000.

The builders reckon about £2,000 to move it.


You may remember the sad news of Finchcocks closure last year, and the sale of the collection. Well there is some more positive news, from Emma Williams at Finchcocks:

In an interesting turn of events, Finchcocks' doors have been opened to the public once again. Part of the historic manor has been transformed into a contemporary piano school - offering weekend and week-long piano courses for adults of all abilities.

We're a brand new business hoping to keep the music alive at Finchcocks so your help would be much appreciated.

Meissen Porcelain Flute
George III played the flute whilst convalescing at Kew Palace. This beautiful Meissen flute may have belonged to hi
m. It is unusual as it is made of porcelain rather than wood. Watch flautist Ashley Solomon explain why a porcelain flute can be a challenge to play.

Please do take a look.

Hope you like it. Also please note that the web address has changed.

TVEMF has a library with multiple copies of more than 50 pieces of printed music available for borrowing - see the link on our home page

Tamsin Lewis and Passamezzo have a number of CDs.

A wonderful selection of words and music. Although most of these will be unfamiliar to the audience - and indeed to the world at large - this is tempered by the fact that the ballads are often to be sung to well-known melodies.... The versatility of Passamezzo is amazing in smoothly juggling the forces required: lute and guitar, and a variety of viols and recorders, all expertly played. Eleanor Cramer's singing is a delight throughout ”

Passamezzo provide historical music, dance and spectacle for concerts, heritage sites, education, special occasions and weddings.
