Week 274 – Kirner at the Console

It’s star organist time and this month we journeyed up to Compton Lodge, Sapcote to the residence of Paul Kirner. Paul is proud owner of a 4/20 Compton-Wurlitzer with the console being from the Ritz Belfast. Sit Back and enjoy Paul at the console with a selection of favourites.
