St Paul’s Cathedral Fantastic Feats Organ Festival 2019

7246 pipes ranging in size from 10 metres to the size of a small pencil, all controlled from a console of five keyboards, a pedalboard and over a hundred pistons: the organ of St Paul’s Cathedral has always been a fantastic feat of engineering and one of the world’s most spectacular technological marvels.
