The MIDI files are here only to give an indication of the music and will sound rather different on the organ.


All mp3 files feature Simon Pusey the former Director of Music at St Mary's playing the Makin (electronic) organ that was used until the Walker organ was restored. These files are quite large and can take some time to download.
