Although the 1870 organ in the Parr Hall is obviously important as the only recognizable survivor of the nine Cavaillé-Coll organs built in this country, it is strongly believed that the organ has a special significance in the entire corpus of the Cavaillé-Coll organs, something that might well be especially important if the disposal of the organ by the Warrington authorities becomes a real threat to its survival.
There is no doubt in my mind that this could and should become a major heritage issue in the widest sense.

It is ironic that one of the people involved in the removal of the Cragg Vale organ to France is also my co-Admin of the Facebook group
'Warrington Cavaillé-Coll Organ'.
Just like Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, he is also from Toulouse'.
