Fundraising by Keyed Up! Latest

Thanks to your generosity, the Keyed Up! appeal has raised a magnificent total of just over £20,000 so far.

We need to raise £100,000 over three years to fully restore the historic TC Lewis organ of St Peter’s Vauxhall. The instrument is now in urgent need of a major overhaul. A restored organ will enable us to continue celebrating the musical heritage of this area, which includes the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens where Handel Arne and J.C.Bach all played.

Sponsor a Pipe!

Please help by sponsoring a pipe of our historic organ. You can do this at five levels which correspond to the different stops of the organ:

Flute            £50                         (number offered 224)
Gamba        £100                      (number offered 168)
Diapason    £250                      (number offered 112)
Trumpet      £1000                    (number offered 56)
Sub-bass    £2000 or more     (number offered 30)

All names of donors will be displayed publicly to show our appreciation.

We are looking for the support of 590 people which is the number of pipes that the organ has.  If we secure this support we will raise just over £45,000, which is enough to match fund any other grants and secure the future of this organ.

Please make cheques payable to “North Lambeth Parish” and put your cheque into a Gift Aid envelope  so we can benefit from tax relief.

We can also arrange payment by BACS transfer and in instalments – please ask.

Daniel Moult, organist

Daniel Moult, “one of the finest organists of our time” (The Organ), is renowned in the UK and abroad for virtuosic, intelligent and engaging performances of repertoire from the 14th to the 21st centuries. His musicianship has been praised as “exhilarating” (Gramophone), “dazzling” (The Organ), and “formidable” (Organists’ Review). Born in Manchester, Daniel studied at Oxford (where he gained the Fellowship diploma of the Royal College of Organists with three of the top playing prizes and was jointly awarded the University of Oxford John Betts Organ Scholarship) and the Amsterdam Conservatorium. He has written numerous articles, edited various musical editions for Bärenreiter and others, and presented The Elusive English Organ, a documentary tracing the history of English organ music from 1550 to 1830. Based in London, Daniel is in demand as a soloist and accompanist, broadcasts frequently on BBC Television and Radio and has recorded for various record labels including Fugue State, Sony BMG and Radio Netherlands.

The organ of St Peter’s, Vauxhall

The organ at St Peter’s was built by T. C. Lewis of Brixton, one of the finest organ builders of the 19th century. Although small in size and having only 11 stops, it creates a magnificent palette of sound colours that blossom in the radiant acoustic of St Peter’s. Though in run-down condition, it is superbly built and will respond very well to restoration. Much of Lewis’s work has been altered or lost. This organ is of immeasurable importance and once restored will serve the community for at least the 150 years that it has already been here.

£10 (premium seats £15, concessions £5)
