We drove to Melbourne just to play pipe organs | SWELL VOX

A couple of months ago I planned a trip to visit Melbourne (for my birthday) to record something on an organ in the city. I’m so grateful to have been given access to St. Peter’s Eastern Hill and St. Paul’s Cathedral (links to organ specifications below). To make things more interesting, I thought we could make this a Swell Vox reunion with the Lee brothers who are at university there. In case you haven’t noticed, the Swell Vox recordings have taken a little hiatus…so perhaps this is the video of the year! The visit was a semi-surprise as you’ll discover. Tom came along for the trip too (unfortunately my brother, Andrew, couldn’t come) and we got up to all sorts of antics. We hope you enjoy this video.

If you are willing an able, please support us with a donation via one of the links below so we can continue to create more music.

Many thanks to Rhys Arvidson, Philip Nicholls and Mark Slavec for allowing us access to the church and their fine instruments.
