The National Pipe Organ Register (NPOR) provides a no-charge and advertisement-free on-line catalogue of organs in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. Searches may be performed on building address and on builder name. The output from these is in the form of a short-list arranged by county and town. Individual instruments can be selected from this list and for each one the following information is normally shown:
Name of building
Index number for the survey in the NPOR
Date of the survey
Builders and dates
Console and casework information
The NPOR was begun in its present computer-based form in 1991 by Peter le Huray and Mike Sayers. and is based in Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge.
The information, originally based on public records, has been supplemented by information sent in by individual contributors. BIOS is most grateful to all those who have contributed material to the NPOR; without them it would not exist. The data is still not complete and additions and corrections are welcome. Updates should be sent to the NPOR Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org Data input and editing is controlled by a small group of specialist voluntary editors.
