St Salvator's Chapel Organ

Geraint Jones was responsible for the installation of the only two British organs by the Austrian firm of Gerhard Hradetzky, the other being in the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. This fine instrument was completed in 1973 replacing one by Henry Willis and Sons. The St Salvator's Chapel Organ is used frequently for concerts, services and for providing organ music for weddings.
