One of Alexandria’s most historic churches is set to get a new set of pipes.

After a six-year process, Christ Church in Old Town will receive a new pipe organ from the legendary Durham, England-based instrument maker Harrison & Harrison, according to a news release. Harrison & Harrison is known for building custom instruments for Westminster Abbey, King’s College Cambridge and Coventry Cathedral, among other venues.

The new pipe organ will be the sixth instrument installed in Christ Church since it was constructed in 1773 and one of only a handful of Harrison & Harrison organs that have been installed in the U.S. The instrument will be named the Bromley Organ after Cap and Marilyn Bromley, two parishioners who donated funds to help complete the project.

To celebrate, Christ Church will hold a recital on Jan. 30, 2022 featuring Nathan Laube, an organ professor from Stuttgart, Germany
