The Organ

The organ is a three manual instrument with more than 2,500 pipes. It was originally built in the late 19th century by William Hill. It was rebuilt in 1926 by Rushworth and Dreaper of Liverpool and apart from some tonal modifications and solid state console additions it remains much the same as it was then and is still considered to be one of the finest instruments in North Wales.

In summer 2017, the organ was dismantled and a rebuild by Henry Willis and Sons of  Liverpool began. The work was completed in spring 2018.

Paul has played for us before and those who attend the August Organ Concerts will remember him wowing us with his performance in 2016 of the Finale of the Saint-Saens Organ Symphony – he is well know for his entertaining programmes and virtuoso playing.   Already this year Paul has given recitals at St Paul’s Cathedral, Exeter Cathedral, Birmingham Cathedral, Ripon Cathedral, Blackburn Cathedral, Ellesmere College and many other venues.
