Trinity College organ keyboard

The Organ

Trinity College’s magnificent mechanical-action Metzler organ is regarded as one of the finest instruments of its kind in the United Kingdom

The original instrument was built by the famous ‘Father’ Smith in 1694 and 1706; the present organ was completed by the Swiss firm Metzler und Söhne in 1976 based on the Smith’s surviving pipework and within its original cases. The 42-rank Metzler is remarkable for its meticulous craftsmanship and durability, rich but gentle resonance, and exquisite balance.
