Shirley Methodist Church

Shirley Methodist Church

OVERVIEW

Almost 20 years ago Wyvern were chosen to install the organ in the new and impressive building.  Careful consideration was given to where the speakers could be placed and a purpose-built chamber was created at high level.

In 2007 the organist, Graham Lowe, gave opening recital at a nearby church, Holy Cross Billsley Common where a Wyvern WpX organ had been installed.  He was so smitten so in 2008 we had the pleasure to rebuild the Wyvern C240 Shirley organ and the result is stunning. The organ has enormous character, great power and depth of tone in the true English organ tradition. A recent visitor remarked it sounded like a Hill – praise indeed!
