    Mixed set wasn't it. Happened to be on the radio, I hadn't known in advance. Didn't enjoy all of it but overall a pleasant evening's listening.

    I just remember saying to Heather what a talking point it was. Ten thousand sound like a throw away comment anything over it’s got Over ten thousand, but Nine Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine is a statement of fact and thus a talking point. Hence why we are talking about it, good call on the designer, I can’t remember his name:D just off to google that crumb of information. X Don

    Henry Willis

    Construction. Designed and built by Henry Willis at a cost of approximately £8,000, the Hall's Grand Organ was built in just 14 months – a swift construction considering the size of the instrument.
