An eventful Tuesday

The events of September were much on our mind yesterday, with an important meeting about the 150th anniversary exhibition at the city museum (begins 21st September) and a meeting with High School Chaplains about the visit of St Thérèse. It is the Cathedral organ, however, which occupies our immediate attention, with work now progressing at a dizzying rate. The console is completed and wired up; most of the pipework is back in place and much of the work now is about ironing out minor problems here and there. Yesterday the organ was being played from its console for the first time in nearly two years, so the end is undoubtedly in sight! A little more patience is yet required, however, and it will be mid June by the time the project is completed. Pictures of the new console will follow on the blog in due course.
