Daventry-born Reginald John Foort was to become one of the most famous (and most recorded) theatre organists of all time. Working as a staff organist at the BBC, Foort went on to commission the Moller Organ Company in 1938 to create a travelling theatre organ that could be dismantled and taken on the road. With 2,000 pipes and weighing 30 tonnes, this was no mean feat. However, after a number of memorable performances during the Blitz, the tour eventually came to a halt due to the war. Several of Foort’s records sold over a million copies, beating all other music sales at the time.
