Hill, Norman and Beard (1974)

The three manual Hill, Norman & Beard organ situated at the west end of the nave dates from 1974, though it employs a few pipes and the frontal case from a much earlier instrument by John Geib, built for this church in 1790. More...

The light "classical" voicing of this instrument utilises 25 stops and contrasts well with the sonorous qualities of the Harrison & Harrison; played together they fill the church with sound.

 

Harrison & Harrison (1908)

The four manual  50 stop Harrison & Harrison organ is located in the north choir aisle with the console set back behind the choir stalls. This instrument is virtually unique among organs of its era in that it has not been rebuilt or altered since installation. More...

The quality of this beautiful, large Edwardian instrument is still apparent in the richness of tone and the huge variety of tonal colour. We now need to raise around 1,000,000 to restore the instrument and endow it for the future.
