When STG was approached by the Italian Embassy to move a church organ from the Midlands to outside Bologna, Italy – even we thought they might have dialled the wrong number! However, it turned out that they were serious and, having studied the project in detail, it was soon in hand. Under supervision, everything was carefully dismantled, packed, dispatched and reassembled in its new location.
Some years later, the team were involved in the new chapel organ purchased by Merton College, Oxford – in order to celebrate their 450th anniversary. Originating in the USA, the most difficult part was negotiating the chapel door, in theory not wide enough for the largest piece – but that’s another story.
