Audio tourThe Sneltzler Organ

Only in English

It is probable that an organ was here as early as 1400. The first known organist was here from 1492 to 1508.

In the mid-16th century there were two organs in St Laurence.

In 1764 John Snetzler, a Swiss organ builder living in London, completed the heart of today's organ at a cost of £1,000 (about £110,000 in today's money).

In the19th Century the organ was restored and moved to the North Transept.

In 2006, improvements were made to  the console, and a set of pipes added to re-create one of the stops of the original Snetzler organ, which was removed in the 19th Century.
