    Spitfire Audio Union Chapel Organ KONTAKT

    A legendary Organ built by the master Henry Willis, in a legendary London venue; the beautiful Union Chapel. From angelic soft delicacies to roaring thunder, this instrument is one of the finest examples of 19th Century craftsmanship in the world, and gives you a Symphonic Orchestra of tones at your fingertips.

    The Organ at London’s Union Chapel was built by Henry ‘Father’ Willis in 1877 specifically to match the size and acoustics of the building and is undoubtedly one of the finest in the world. Henry Willis who is regarded as the foremost organ builder of the Victorian era also built the organs at the Royal Albert Hall and St Paul’s Cathedral.

    The Union Chapel Organ remains essentially unaltered. The only significant changes have been the replacement of the Choir Gemshorn 4ft by a 2ft Piccolo in 1909, the provision of electric blowing in the 1920s, and the installation of a balanced swell pedal in the 1940s. As an important example of ‘Father’ Willis’s work, in 2012-13 the organ was fully restored by organ builders Harrison & Harrison based on historic principles. The original hydraulic blowing engines (water powered) have also been restored to working order by James Richardson-Jones and are retained as an alternative to electric blowing (one of very few left in the world!). It has three manuals, Swell, Great, Choir, and a full pedalboard.

    Since the restoration Union Chapel have been running a diverse concert programme around the organ including a brand new experimental organ festival launching in 2016. These concerts of all genres continually demonstrate how versatile the organ can be and that it is not simply a church instrument, but in fact the world’s first synthesiser which can be incorporated into most genres of music. For more information on their programme please visit www.unionchapel.org.uk The chapel itself has a beautiful acoustic and has hosted artists such as Nils Lofgren, Ray Davies, Beck, Suzanne Vega, Nitin Sawhney, Ryan Adams, Lady Antebellum, Elton John, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin, James Morrison, Amy Winehouse, David Byrne, Tori Amos, Bjork.
