The organ at Bowood House Chapel marked the completion of a study project into the work of the Trost organ building family who were active contemporaries of J.S. Bach in his native area of Thuringia. Built within an earlier chapel organ case, an organ was built based on documentary evidence dating from the period with Christopher Kent as consultant. Here he plays a selection of works intended to demonstrate the result.
