Organ Deconstruction Begins

Today saw a little déjà vu as scaffolding was once again carried into Holy Trinity Cathedral, this time to facilitate the old Harrison organ’s removal.

We welcome to the Cathedral Paul and Neil Daly from Nicholson & Co Ltd, the company building the new Cathedral organ.  For 5 weeks during January and early February, supported by a team of local organ builders, Paul and Neil will be removing the old Cathedral organ.  In this process they will be retaining the pipes that will be reused.  Some of these will be transported back to the UK for reconditioning. The largest pipes will be reconditioned here in New Zealand when Nicholson’s come for the first part of the organ installation in 2016.
