About Organ Stops: Saving the King of Instruments
Organ Stops is a heart-warming elegy to a disappearing musical world. Martin Renshaw has spent his life playing and building pipe organs; nowadays he spends all his time rescuing them. ‘It’s a real crisis. There are around fifty churches [in the UK] closing every year and half the organs in them are worth saving. ’Filmmaker James Dawson’s film follows Martin’s struggle and looks at the work of a diverse range of organ lovers in their inspirational journey to preserve.
