This greyscale image depicts the world’s famous Kings College Harrison & Harrison chapel organ at Kings College Chapel, located in Cambridge, England, U.K.
Like the College Choir, the Harrison & Harrison organ in King’s College Chapel is famous worldwide. The organ case with gilded pipework, which surmounts the 16th-century screen, is a striking feature of nearly every depiction of the interior of the Chapel. At the same time, the instantly recognisable sounds of the instrument have become inextricably associated with those of the Choir.
Many of today’s leading musicians have held the position of Organ Scholar at King’s. The organ fulfils an essential role in the religious and musical life of the College while also serving as an educational resource; as such, it supports all of the College’s statutory aspirations: ‘education, religion, learning and research’.
