Adopt a Stop!

Adopt a Stop!

The Cathedral’s organ sits at the heart of our music, supporting all who sing here and inspiring all who journey here. This magnificent instrument was refurbished by Harrison and Harrison in 2019, thanks to the support of our generous donors. The refurbished instrument has a new, relocated console, with four manuals and 89 stops giving voice to over 6,000 pipes. The stops (ranks of pipes) allow a kaleidoscope of sounds to shine through. Each pipe, from the smallest to the largest adds to this wonderful instrument, enhancing the voices of all who sing within these walls.

Adopt a Stop!

Although the Cathedral Organ Project is now complete, you can still support our Adopt a Stop scheme, with a gift towards the annual maintenance of this Great Organ. We will honour your generosity with:

  • A certificate signed by The Dean of Canterbury
  • Recognition in a new dedicated Book of Donors
  • An invitation to one of the Cathedral’s organ concerts (additional costs may apply)

You can sponsor a pipe, selection of pipes or a stop of the organ at a range of levels; from £50 for pipes in smaller stops to £10,000 for the 32ft pipes. For more information please contact Alex Madgwick, Individual Giving Manger, on alex.madgwick@canterbury-cathedral.org

Having known this organ for such a long time it will be sad to say goodbye to a good old friend but I am looking forward to its return in its newly refurbished form. It is a very exciting project.

Dr David Flood, Cathedral Organist and Master of Choristers
