The new organ, which received generous funding from the Stoller Charitable Trust, is being mounted on the quire screen at the centre of the building. The project is a major step in achieving our aim to secure a 600-year music tradition at the Cathedral. The new instrument will provide new learning opportunities and support both the choir and the congregation for many years to come.
