Manchester Cathedral, nave console and organ case

It was a joy to be present at Thomas Trotter’s opening recital on the new Tickell organ at Manchester Cathedral today. The organ is a wonderful testimony to the late, much missed, Ken Tickell and forms not only his magnum opus but a lasting testimony to his life’s work. As consultant, I have been involved there for over a decade: the spectacular result is more than worth the time and trouble everyone has put in.
