The new Grand Organ at Our Lady of Victories by Anton SKRABL, to be completed early in 2020, will be one of the most exciting new instruments in the UK. With 52 stops over four manuals and pedals, the organ is inspired by the French Symphonic tradition, which found its culmination in the work of Aristide Cavaillé-Coll.
