Re: Re: Organ Cases In Irish Churches and Cathedrals
Here is Killarney – does anyone have a photo of the case before it was divided?
Probably one of the smallest cathedral organs in ireland (only 2 manuals) in one of the largest cathedrals!
This organ actually has three manuals (although still lacks the “big stuff” vital to fill a huge cathedral). It was originally Telford and contained in what I believe was a handsome case. In the 70’s the Irish Organ Company divided it and made some tonal alterations leaving in the state it now appears…
Note what the 70s cathedral “renovations” did to the interior of what was once a masterpiece of Pugin’s work.
