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.

Only THREE weeks to go @rowan_lilia before you get to sing at these AMAZING places!!!! You are one very lucky 13 yr old! @thomas_leech @alexanderbkyle @DOLMusic 🎶🎼🎵 #rome #bcyctour #stpeters #stpaulswithoutwalls #santamariamaggiore #venerableenglishcollege

Donated..can I encourage others to do so? @DOLMusic, partners of @GabrieliCandP ROAR, do wonderful work with young people, many of them quite disadvantaged. A great cause. https://t.co/DuaCrii6B6

@RowganC @rowan_lilia @thomas_leech @alexanderbkyle @DOLMusic Just supported this ...I hope others do !

@thomas_leech @DOLMusic Abs fab to hear such amazing progress. @DOLMusic is a REAL education project, culturally diverse, working from grass roots, and about training up to a high level. No short cuts!

Started today with an hour with Y5 and 6 in St Philip's Middleton, part of Leeds with extremely high levels of multiple deprivation...that weekly work for @dolmusic is as rewarding and even more important than the glorious polyphony the cathedral choir sings daily...
