Here we see Bert Richardson, the Director of Music at the Cathedral, practicing the organ. The original organ, built in 1869, was never completed according to specification. Several years ago it was found to be in need of extensive repair and restoration, and so the decision was made to replace it with a state-of-the-art digital organ. This was built by Makin’s of Leeds.
With a voice of singing declare ye this, and let it be heard, Alleluia.
Utter it even unto the ends of the earth.
The Lord hath delivered his people, Alleluia.
O be joyful in God, all ye lands,
O sing praises to the honour of his name, make his praise to be glorious.
