Hear the Organ
Below are two excerpts from a concert held by organist David Pether at the Hill & Son Grand Organ on 20th October, 2015. They offer only a glimpse into the beauty of the Hill & Son Grand Organ’s sound. For a true appreciation you will have to see the real thing in action – see the Events page for more details of upcoming concerts.
(These recordings were kindly clipped out of the recording made on the day and transferred by Russ Stiggants to appear in their entirety on the Organ Historical Trust of Australia’s Website – the below are excerpts from the full recordings.)
** STOP PRESS – you can now have the Hill & Son in your own home through the stunning new recording by Sydney organist David Tagg, entitled ‘Soaring Sounds’. Visit the Store for more details and to order your copy!*

Image Gallery of the Hill & Son Grand Organ
The images below offer a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the organ from a creative perspective – only fitting considering the organ is itself a work of art. They were taken by Kat Cameron in June 2016 during one of the Hill & Son Grand Organ Open Days. If you are interested in learning about the open days, visit the Join Us page to learn how you can become a member of the Friends and have the chance to gain a behind the scenes view of this amazing instrument in action!
