St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol

St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol: Harris & Byfield organ 1726. The case was designed by John
Strahan (d. 1735), a Bristol architect who was a pupil of Sir John Vanbrugh.

Over the years a number of copies were made of this case and it became a distinctive "West Country" style. Other examples were a simplified version at St. Thomas-the-Martyr, Bristol (Harris & Byfield, 1728),St. Andrew, Plymouth (Parsons, 1735), St. Andrew, Chippenham (Seede, 1752), St. Peter, Bristol (Seede, 1772), and St. Mary Magdalene, Taunton (Micheau, 1782).
