A Supplement to Historic Organs of New South Wales – the instruments, their makers and players, 1791-1940 is now available, published and distributed by the Organ Historical Trust of Australia.

If you liked Graeme Rushworth’s 1988 work Historic Organs of New South Wales, you must have the Supplement!

If you do not have Rushworth’s 1988 work, do not despair! The Supplement is a stand-alone work packed with fascinating reading, and is the same ‘Mixture IV’ about people, organ and church history, and music.

The Supplement has been designed as a companion volume to present new information found since the 1988 book was published.

Contents include:

  • More about the early organs in NSW to 1855 including the 1840 Bevington for St Mary’s Cathedral, and also a full account of Francis Ellard and his musical family and the organ they brought to Sydney in 1838.
  • NSW, interstate and overseas builders and their work in NSW – additional notes on Johnson, Kinloch, Jackson, Davidson, Layton Bros, Broderick, Smith, Aeolian Company, Balbiani, Norman & Beard Ltd, Pilcher, Positive Organ Co, etc.
  • Descriptions of the Bates & Son organ at St John's, Camden, with the operating instructions for its "dumb organist" barrel attachment; the great auction of Flight & Robson's stock in 1832; the fires at premises of Bevington, Hill, and Walker.
  • More biographies of important NSW organists including Alex Rea, Alice Bryant, the Gehde and Mote families, Frederick Morley, Charles Tuckwell and others.
  • Biographies of renowned overseas organists Renée Nizan and W.H. Jude and their concerts in Australia, and details of Marcel Dupré's Sydney visit and concerts.
  • A "Miscellaneous" section includes descriptions of the University of Sydney Musical Festival of 1859; several large orchestrions in Sydney; the two Bishop families of organbuilders in NSW; organ histories of NSW churches that were previously unknown; Thomas C. Christmas and his work in Queensland, etc.
  • An appendix of information on 120 British organbuilders and their families, compiled from the 1881 British census.
  • A complete index
