The Organ

The organ dates in part from 1715 and is therefore contemporary with the building. Originally built by Schwarbrick, it has since been moved from its original position in a West end gallery, enlarged and modernized, most recently by Nicholsons in 1993. A full history and specification is available from the Cathedral shop.

For more information about the organ, see the National Pipe Organ Register page for the Birmingham Cathedral Organ
