This week I made another site visit to the beautiful catholic cathedral of St Marie, in Sheffield, where Andrew Carter and his team are meticulously reassembling what must be the most compact 3-manual tracker organ T.C.Lewis ever made. After a disastrous intervention by a local firm in the 1970s this 1875 organ is now being fully restored with a new mechanical action, the aim being for completion by Christmas. HLF funding has made this possible.
