Dear all,

This clip appeared over Christmas on Youtube and I'm sure I recognise it from an AGM / Open day at Russell Cook's wonderful collection. Don't know if it was FOPS, MOOS or one of the Fairground Society's AGM'S. I'm in them all and I think they are all brilliant!
I only looked at this (regretfully!) fleetingly and don't know if it's a new build replica or based on an old instrument. Either way it's a stunning organ.
Can anyone help?

Best Regards and Happy New Year

Peter Clarke.

Hi Peter,
The Marenghi is an replica built by Mark Rawlins who started building it 2 years ago. The organ play's on the 89 key Marenghi scale and the organ is still having work done it to get playing fully.
