'Behind-the-Scenes' Organ Tour

Behind the scenes organ tour, 19 March 2021

The organ at Gloucester Cathedral has many a story to tell, so every two weeks, a member of our Music Department will give you an insight into one of its different components.

In this video, our Director of Music, Adrian Partington, discusses the Diapason family. He explains the meaning of the word ‘diapason’, offers a fascinating look into the history of these organ pipes, and demonstrates how they sound. We hope you enjoy watching!

Click on the video below to watch - it will be available to view from 5.30pm on Friday 19 March.
