The installation of the JW Walker Organ was finally completed in December 2017, just in time for the Christmas celebrations. An instrument of stunning quality and workmanship, it originally resided at the Royal Northern College of Music from its construction in 1992 to 2017.
The clergy, PCC and people of St James and Emmanuel would like to thank all those who have made it possible to purchase and rebuild the Walker Organ following the closure of the College’s organ department. It replaces the St James organ, which ceased to work in 2017 after long service to the parish.
This wonderful instrument is dedicated to the glory of God: soli Deo gloria
