St Mary’s Organ Restoration

We are delighted to welcome Simon Pierce and team to the Cathedral this week from Brisbane. Pierce Pipe Organs Pty Ltd is undertaking a full restoration of the St Mary’s 1909 George Croft organ.

Simon and team commenced on site yesterday morning. They will spend the next 10 days dismantling the organ for transportation to Australia for restoration. They will return to install the restored organ later in the year to have it ready for use again by Christmas.

We are very much looking forward to hearing and seeing this fine instrument restored to pristine condition.

Please note that St Mary’s is closed until Sunday 15 May while these works take place.
