Peterborough Cathedral Hill

An outstanding English Cathedral organ by one of the great English organ builders, William Hill, the Peterborough Cathedral organ was recorded prior to it's re-pitch in 2015, and has been painstakingly recreated as a Hauptwerk virtual organ using bespoke processing techniques to provide the most complete archive recording currently possible.

Details of the organ and it's history can be found here

For specifications of the organ, see the details available on the National Pipe Organ Register (NPOR)

In addition to being fully recorded prior to it's repitch, a significant proportion of this splendid instrument has been re-recorded after the pitch change, allowing us to make available Hauptwerk sample set versions of both the old and new specifications (including the new Hill Style Tuba Mirabilis). The recordings were made using microphone positions and formats which will allow both Dry, Wet Stereo, and Wet Surround sound samples sets to be produced in due course. The dry set is available upon request

Please keep coming back to check our progress, and feel free to contact us in the meantime with any enquiries.

Below are some images of the Virtual Console layout, along with some photos of the actual instrument

Below is an introduction and demonstration of the Peterborough organ and sample set kindly recorded by Stephen Norton:

The Peterborough Hill Stereo set has been updated to work in both Hauptwerk version 4 and Hauptwerk V, we are now working on the dry and multi channel sets, and creating an instrument to the current specification.
