The 2016 IAO Music Festival (formerly Congress) was based in Bath and for the next few months we shall feature Organs of the Month seen & heard by the several BOA members who attended. Appropriately enough, for our 175th Organ of the Month, the featured instrument is the mighty Bath Abbey organ, reconstructed with additions by the famous German (Bonn) firm of Orgelbau Klais.
Approximately half the pipes of the present instrument were provided by Klais; the remainder, following restoration, come from earlier instruments by Wm Hill, by Norman & Beard, and by HNB. The action is now mechanical with electric coupling.
