Notes & Reviews:

The earliest mention of an organ in St. Asaph Cathedral is with reference to an instrument being replaced in 1512. New organs were installed in 1741 and 1834 with enlargements and modifications taking place over the years. In 1932 the Cathedral tower was deemed unsafe, so the organ was dismantled and stored while the building was made structurally sound. Subsequent rebuilds and improvements were made in 1966 and 1998.
