The Cathedral's Musical Instruments

Chamber Organs

The Cathedral has two chamber organs. In March 2011 the Cathedral took delivery of a new chamber organ by Robin Jennings of Dorset. Resulting from a generous donation, the organ matches the high quality of the Cathedral organ and grand piano. The case is made from limed oak, and the front pipes are the basses of the Principal 4'. The blower is integrated into the bottom of the case.

Chamber2

The organ is available for concert use, and can be easily transposed up or down a semitone. The specification is as follows:
Flute 8
Flute 4
Principal 4

At the back of the Cathedral is an historic 3-stop organ dating from c. 1790. It was built in London by Henry Holland and moved to Norfolk in 1815. It was brought to the Cathedral from St Margaret's Church, Hales in 1951. The specification is:
Flute 8
Flute 4
Principal 2  

Chamber4

Piano

A beautiful Steinway D 9' 2" Concert Grand was donated to the Cathedral in 2008. It is a superb instrument which enhances the music we offer to the glory of God here in the Cathedral and gives solo performers at concerts and recitals an instrument of the finest quality to use.
