St Vigor's & St John's

Remembering St. Vigor's Pipe Organ

In September of 2021, St. Vigor’s historic pipe organ was relocated to the Church of St. Paio in the parish of Requiexo, Aveiro, Portugal. Prior to its dismantling , organ builder Barthélemy Janus, just came in, sat down and played “Misericordias Domini” (The mercies of the Lord).

Please do enjoy Barthélemy’s recital below or perhaps a longer sung version by Cappella Victoria Jakarta, a church choir based in St. Therese of Lisieux Parish, Menteng, Jakarta. The choir was founded in 2005 by several of St. Therese’s young parishioners, and currently has singers from different parishes in Archdiocese of Jakarta and Bogor.

Update on Tuesday 5th September

Planning to visit St. John’s Church, Chilcompton? Please note that our planned works require another few days to complete. Therefore, the building will now be closed to visitors from Wednesday 6th September until Friday 8th September inclusive to enable further work to the refurbishment of the chancel floor to be carried out safely. The church will be open again to visitors from Saturday 9th September.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
