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.

Join Tom on YouTube at 2pm for alliterative animals in Bless the Lord, The Osprey, a Lenten meditation with Salvator Mundi, and burn off some energy with GO BANANAS! This week's themes are reconciliation and forgiveness and musical signs and symbols.

Today's the deadline! If you're thinking about throwing your hat in the ring, do it now - lovely team of people to work with and plenty of creative freedom.

Join Tom for a packed Virtual Sing today at 2pm! Four different languages, lots of alliterative animals, two songs marking the start of Lent and a VERY spooky version of the Ghost of Tom (as well as a bonus quiz!).


We're back for more singing! Our faith theme this week is Lent, and our music curriculum theme is tonality. Tom starts us off at 2pm today, singing in Spanish, Polish, Tagalog and Latin, and with some very spooky multitracking...
