Organ Pipes

Henry Willis

King's College Chapel, University of London

Sir Gilbert Scott

Interior attributed to Clayton & Bell


The original decoration of the chapel, which has largely been restored now, is believed to have been carried out by the well-known firm of Clayton & Bell, with which Scott had a long-standing connection. Amongst many points of interest in it are the organ by Henry Willis, which dates from the 1860s, and was reconstructed by his grandson in the 1930s, and then again at later dates: the beautiful angel designs on the largest pipes were only revealed during the latest restoration work.
