The Henry Willis Organ in the Great Hall of St George's Hall

The organ of St George's Hall was selected from a competition of three entries at the Great Exhibition in 1851 and, when installed, was the largest concert instrument in the world. It is now the third largest pipe organ in the UK, to two larger ones being in The Royal Albert Hall and Liverpool Cathedral. Both of these organs were also built by Henry Willis.
