From last month's large and powerful instrument we move this month to one of the smallest and most restrained of the organs visited during the Norwich Congress. The Old Meeting House Congregational Church was founded in 1643 - a time of considerable religious turbulence. Although this building dates from 1693, there is evidence that the organ contains some pipework from earlier in the 17th century.
It is believed that the case (and so maybe some pipework too) pre-dates the c1685 Harris construction and was originally produced by Thomas Dallam for the Choir Organ of Norwich Cathedral.
