After 6 years in the planning, the organ builders have arrived from the UK to install the Cathedral organ!
Over the last week a city of scaffolding has grown in the centre of the Cathedral. This will be in place for many weeks while the first side of the organ is installed. This area is fully fenced from the public and will be the organ builders’ compound for the next 5 months. It will allow the Cathedral to remain open over this time.
The first of several 40 ft containers arrived at 5.30 am this morning and was unloaded into the compound, ready to be installed.
With all this activity in the Cathedral, weekday Eucharist and weekday Evensong are currently being held in St Mary’s-in-Holy Trinity. The Cathedral remains open for visitors and all Sunday services.
