Another II/11 stock model organ built by William Charlton Blackett for St. Paul’s Chapel (now St. Paul’s Church, of the Chinese Anglican Sheng Kung Hui Ming Hua Seminary.) The specs were presumably identical (or nearly so) to those in HKG1933a and HKG1934. This was, however, one of Blackett’s few split-chancel organs.
The church was built in 1911, and expanded in 1935. During the Occupation of Hong Kong it was used by the Japanese. The organ was partly derelict after the Second World War, although it appears it was working to some extent into the 1970s (an organ recital was given by a Mr. Phillip Cooper on 23 July of that year.) Eventually most of the pipes were discarded and the lower part of the organ cases was turned into a storage area.
In 2006 it was converted into a Rodgers hybrid by MPOS, retaining only the Open Diapason (façade) and Bourdon from Blackett’s instrument. Further information is available here: http://www.mpos-organs.com/case-study-hong-kong
