THE CARTWRIGHT & CARTWRIGHT ORGAN      

                            

   

The organ was blessed by His Grace the Archbishop of Birmingham on Tuesday November 29th 2016 at a Confirmation Mass.  

The project, launched in January 2004 has been a steady process of developing design and fund raising. It has taken a long time but the results so far speak for themselves. Notwithstanding our limited budget we now have a fine three - manual pipe organ capable of performing all the accompanying duties (both choir and congregation) and for playing an extensive range of solo repertoire. Our thanks go to organ builders Philip and Keith Cartwright for not only transplanting the original Rushworth & Dreaper two - manual organ but also for their excellent work in blending new and additional material with the original. This organ now produces a beautiful and majestic sound in St Wulstan’s wonderful acoustic. You can find out more about the organ and see the specification by following the links from the front page.

UPDATE: There are some small finishing touches being applied to the organ in January 2019. Most are cosmetic. However we hope to see the installation of twelve Bass Clarinet pipes, enabling the Choir Clarinet stop to be available at sixteen - foot pitch down to bottom 'C' when played from the Great via the "Choir Sub - Octave to Great" coupler.
