Organs – St Patrick’s Huddersfield

The Skrabl Organ

St Patrick’s Church is home to the Huddersfield Boys’ and Huddersfield Girls’ Choirs. The new organ, regarded as one of the finest classical instruments in Britain, was built in the workshops of Anton Skrabl in Slovenia and is located in the west end gallery. The stop and key action is entirely mechanical, the case of oak, and keys and inlay of bone and ebony. The project was completed under the supervision of Benjamin Saunders and John Rowntree. The inaugural concert was given on the 1st December 2009 by Benjamin Saunders.

An Organ Scholarship is available in conjunction with the University of Huddersfield.

One of the highlights of singing mass at St Peter's Basilica was our cathedral organ scholar Anthony conducting the choir - Anthony joined the choir 11 years ago as a treble, and is now studying music at Huddersfield University. Donate to our tour fund: https://t.co/WFFxzSSV96

We're back from Rome - an amazing trip for Bradford Catholic Youth Choir! We finished a busy schedule with an informal performance at the Palazzola last night, and a fully sung Mass this morning in the wonderful 13th Century chapel. Their excellent singing and behaviour were very warmly commented on everywhere we went. Thank you to the fabulous staff at Villa Palazzola for making us so welcome in the beautiful accommodation, and of course to our wonderful volunteer parent chaperones and staff who made this trip possible. ...
