    Favourite UK Cathedral Organ

    Hi,

    I am wondering if any of you have a favourite cathedral organ in the UK(eihter from playing or listening). I have always liked St Pauls, London organ and I have heard that Blackburn Cathedral organ is very good also.

    Any opinions?

    By far, my favorite is the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral organ. Ian Tracy has several excellent CD's. The combination of the Willis/Harrison & Harrison 250 or so ranks along with the superb acoustic of the Cathedral are just marvelous.

      Yes I've played Blackburn too, both before and after the rebuild and I agree it was enhanced. One of the most exciting organs I've played or heard.

        Nice to meet you Aaron!

        Some day I'll have to travel some more and play some famous organs. I have heard that they are just marvelous to play!

          I have played on Southwark Cathedral organ a few years ago and at All Souls, Langham Place, but my favourite organ from what I have heard about it is Norwich Cathedral. I soooooooo want to have a go at it.
