Heavenly Music

From Wikipedia:

 

The cathedral's pipe organ which was built by T. C. Lewis and Co of Brixton, England. Over six and half thousand pounds were spent on its construction, shipping and installation before it was played at the cathedral's opening in 1891. Various modifications and maintenance works have been carried out since then, culminating in a $726,000 restoration which was completed in 1990 with the help of a National Trust appeal. In its restored state the organ has four manuals with 44 stops and pedals with nine stops, all with electro-pneumatic action. It is housed in the cathedral's south transept behind newly-stencilled facade pipes.

 

Here's a link to download an MP3 of JS Bach - Sinfonia to Cantata 29 (arr Gehring) - played by David Ratnanayagam on the St Paul's Cathedral organ.
