The 1900 Willis Organ of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dundalk

Date: Oct 2011

View Count: 1782

Me improvising on this glorious instrument. It is almost entirely original except for some mutations and a swell enclosure added to the Choir division in the 1930s. The Great reeds and Choir Corno di Bassetto have recently been revoiced to their original sound by Trevor Crowe, who maintains this wonderful old organ. Many thanks to Brendan McCourt, cathedral organist and director of music, who allowed me to play and recorded this short video.
