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.

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
