Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral

PostWed Jul 28, 2021 3:04 pm

Harrison & Harrison are rebuilding the 1967 4 manual and pedal J W Walker organ (88 speaking stops, 106 drawstops) and completion is expected in spring 2022. Whilst the work is being carried out they are using a three stop Tickell organ for streaming services and will be using a Hauptwerk system when normal services resume. The cathedral is a circular building with a generous reverberation (7 seconds empty and 3.5 seconds when full).

See https://www.liverpoolmetrocathedral.org.uk/music/the-cathedral-organs/
For information about the organ.

Hauptwerk information from an article by Terry Duffy in “Cathedral Voice”, issue 34.

The Hauptwerk organ, provided by DHMidi-Organs, was delivered last Saturday, set up on Monday, and will be used for the first time tomorrow for the wedding of the ADOM.
The console is a new 3-manual "Principal" from Magnus Organs in Poland, with built-in PC and touchscreens.
For starters it will use the Friesach and Cracow sets from Piotr Grabowski, and an in-house Bose sound system provided by the Dean.
