Following on from the post about York Minster's forthcoming rebuild/restoration, the local Friends of Cathedral Music newsletter says that, at his recital on 28th June, David Halls announced that the Salisbury organ is to be restored throughout 2019. This is old news now, I suppose!

Am I right in thinking that Daniel Cook made a Hauptwerk set there and, if so, will they be using it while the organ is out of commission?

Perhaps so, but you know that Daniel Cook hasn't been in Salisbury for a while - St David's, Westminster Abbey and now to Durham?

The sample set was commercially made while he was there, and is available to buy.  But he constructed his own replica of the console to play it from, which they used while the blower room was being repaired.
