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.
