Welcome to ‘The Organ Manual’, a place where all things organ come together.
I was inspired to set up this site following the research I carried out for a project on young organists. The full report, ‘Inspiring Organists of the Future’ is available on my personal blog ‘Pipes Keys and Chords’. There are so many valuable organ related organisations, magazines, groups, websites and more out there. However I believe it is sometimes difficult to know which way to turn for the information you are looking for, especially if you are new to the organ world. Hopefully this site will help in some way for those interested in the ‘King of Instruments’ or the ‘Beast in the Loft’.
I hope this will become a ‘go to’ reference site for anyone seeking information regarding the organ. This site is supported by Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages where up to date news, events, jobs and more will be shared. Please do follow these pages and tag @TheOrganManual so users can share in your organ related news, stories, vacancies, events and pictures on Twitter and/or Facebook.
To ensure ‘The Organ Manual’ is always relevant, this site will be ever evolving. There will always be information to add or update. If you notice an error, or know of a site which would be useful to others, please let me know. I would welcome your input. Additions and amendments will be highlighted in a monthly review post on the features so users attention is drawn to them.
In addition to being a reference site, there will be monthly features written on topical news stories about the organ. If you would like to write a post please do get in touch.
I am very grateful to the IAO and Organists’ Review who have chosen to support this site. Working with them will help ensure the site can be better publicised and those help who it is written for become aware of it.
