Organs – St Joseph’s Bradford

The Hopkins Organ

The Bradford Boys’ Choir are the choir in residence at St Joseph’s Church in Bradford. The church organ was manufactured in the late 19th century by Hopkins & Son of York. It is widely regarded as the finest organ in the city centre, benefiting from mechanical key action and a superb case from an earlier Anneessens instrument.
