Cathedral pipes are blowing
By LEIGH PRITCHARD
CHRIST Church Cathedral in Grafton has one of the best organs in Australia, following the anonymous donation of 61 pipes.
Cathedral organist Robert Eather is thrilled and said yesterday the organ, Tromba Graftoniensis, would debut on April 3 at 3pm.
"It puts the organ now in ranking alongside other great cathedral organs in the country," Mr Eather said.
He said the organ, valued at more than $800,000, was fitted with a sensor and security device.
Higher wind pressure made it produce a loud and bright sound.
"Tromba Graftoniensis will be louder than all the pipes together and can be heard over the rest of the full organ," he said.
