This organ is built from samples from similar vintage Henry Willis organs from around the North West of England. The ranks have been carefully chosen to match those as found in the large St George's Hall organ, and the Liverpool Anglican cathedral
The specification of this virtual instrument takes it's inspiration mainly from the St George's hall organ, with a few elements of the larger Anglican Cathedral organ, just down the road. This instrument can be enjoyed on a console with less than the four manuals this instrument has, as the designation of each keyboard can be changed at the press of a button

About this organ

This organ has been very carefully sampled from selected Henry Willis organs of very similar vintage from Liverpool and the immediate surrounding area.
This organ is therefore a large composite organ made from more than one source organ, with a specification which takes it's influence from both the organ of St George's hall, Liverpool and Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
The organs the ranks have been sampled from in their own right are very fine and well known instruments and would more than stand alone as a good virtual organ, however in this case we wanted to build something grander, so have combined the best of the ranks and specifications.
In particular, we wanted to be able to recreate the grand sound of these two instruments but keep the organ at a size which still remains responsive in a virtual environment, so it was not practical to make a verbatim copy of either organ specification, nor replicate the shear number of stops!
Whilst this virtual organ is a 4 manual instrument, it is still possible to fully utilise all manuals from a console with less than four manuals. 24 Bit Stereo and 5.1 surround sound (Studio Quality).

Due to one of the organ owners wishing to remain anonymous, at present we are unable to give any details about the organs from which this sample set has been taken. Sadly some of the institutions which have permitted us sampling access rights in the past, have been contacted by our competitors whom have been angered by our whole low cost ethos, which of course quite deliberately challenges their business model.

As such, to protect our sources and to ensure you are able to continue to enjoy these sample sets, we must respect the wishes of the owners of the organ and allow them to remain anonymous. It is deeply saddening that such measures have become necessary

It is really difficult getting rights to sample and distribute sample sets in the first instance so we hope you understand that these measures are for the benefit of us all. All sample sets are 100% genuine and are used with full permission of the organ owners.
