As reported earlier I played in Skaland church at the weekend. Skaland is in the neighbouring parish of Berg, on the outer edge of Senja.
I have added a page about the organ in the organs section of the blog.
There are 3 interesting features to note:
- The instrument has a continuously rotating crescendo pedal which helpfully has a gauge to tell you how much crescendo is in use. The gauge goes to 16. This is presumably an ‘homage’ to the film Spinal Tap in which the guitarist wants an amplifier that goes to 11. how could the king of instruments go to less than 16?
- There were some interesting nutritional remains on the console. 3 are in the picture: can you identify them? Sadly, I could – just.
- For some reason, the ‘Blue Peter’ ship is painted on the ceiling.
