On 15 May 2018 we hosted a grand celebration of the Royal Albert Hall’s world-famous 9,999-pipe Henry Willis organ, known as the ‘the Voice of Jupiter’.
This remarkable concert featured some of the world’s most respected masters of the instrument, Wayne Marshall, Olivier Latry and David Briggs. With live footage of the pipes relayed from inside the grand organ, Tom Daggett (St Paul’s Cathedral) and Michael Broadway (custodian of the organ) discussed what makes this instrument so special at a pre-concert talk.
