St. David's Cathedral UK Organs Horizontal Menu Untitled Untitled
St. David’s Cathedral, Wales

Organ by Harrison & Harrison, Durham, 2000, incorporating pipework from the previous Willis / Hill, Norman & Beard / Rishworth & Dreaper / Daniel organs.

I have long loved St. David’s Cathedral with its lovely purple stonework, and the cathedral happily now has an organ worthy of it. The fine casework by Albert Caroe was recast in consulation with Caroe & Partners, the Cathedral architects. There is electro-pneumatic action. This is an excellent example of what a modern Anglican cathedral organ should be.
