Barrel Organs in English Parish Churches
Barrel organ. Engraved on keyframe: ‘H. BRYCESON, 5 Tottenham Court, New Road, LONDON.’ An advertisement and directions for operating the organ pasted inside the doorflap at the rear of the case are headed: ‘H. BRYCESON, ORGAN BUILDER, No. 5, TOTTENHAM COURT, NEW ROAD, LONDON.’ The church was consecrated in 1833 and the organ given the following year – brass plate on case: ‘This Organ was presented to West Tytherley Church by The Honourable B. Bouverie. A.D. 1834.’ The organ is operated from the rear and the crank handle on the right-hand side operates both the barrel and bellows. The oak Gothic case has two panels of gold painted dummy pipes. Restored in 1987 by Richard Godfrey of Farley Wardenry. Three yellow carriage-mounted barrels x 10 tunes. The first tune on barrel 3 has been repinned.
