Historic organs of Scotland

Sowne of Organe presents detailed surveys of surviving historic organs in Scotland. Each survey includes technical and historical overviews, extensive photographs and recordings of appropriate repertoire performed by Scottish organists. Where possible, relevant archive documents will also be included. The organs have been selected as significant examples of their kind, comprehensively preserved in their original tonal and technical state. We are always delighted to receive new evidence and information about the organs we survey; please use our contact form to get in touch.

  Our next event is on Saturday 17th August, in Weem Parish Church, with the 1975 J.W. Walker & Sons organ. More info here
