The building of the new Cathedral presented the opportunity for a brand new organ to match it. Messrs Harrison & Harrison were appointed in 1952 and a provisional specification was drawn up.
The 1950s saw great upheaval in organ building. The organ reform movement advocated a return to classical principles, as shown in the Harrison organ built for London’s Royal Festival Hall. On the other hand, more Romantic or eclectic organs, typifying the English cathedral sound, had their staunch defenders. It took a long time to reach agreement on the styling of the Coventry instrument and the eventual scheme agreed in 1959 – the work of Dr. Sidney Campbell (organist of St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle) in conjunction with Cuthbert Harrison – was, intentionally, a compromise between the two extremes which resulted in what must surely be one of Harrison and Harrison’s greatest instruments. The organ is therefore something of a compromise, but in a busy cathedral where many demands are placed upon it – recitals, daily services, major events with capacity congregation – it fulfils its role admirably and there are many who hold it in high regard.

This project started in 2002 when i asked the Old Director Of Music if it was possible to sample the Cathedral Organ for my own personal use.... I was expecting him to say NO!! However he was more then happy to open up the Cathedral for 3 whole nights for me to sample this massive Harrison and Harrison organ. Using microphones and lots of cable coming from the floating roof within the cathedral. We are now a few years on since the recordings was done and I've achieved great results within the sounds of each rank of pipes and acoustic.
looping also processing the samples to a high standard in 24bit was very challenging but never the less satisfying.
