On Saturday 15th, at St Mary's Church Hinckley, there will be an opportunity to see and hear a 4 manual Hauptwerk organ. The sample set being demonstrated is that of the Willis instrument in Hereford Cathedral where each pipe in every rank has been recorded so that when played back using the Hauptwerk software, the exact sound of the Hereford organ is faithfully reproduced.
