The famous Holy Name Church stands right at the international crossroads of study, research and healthcare in Manchester.
Every day, thousands of students from all over the world gather on Oxford Road, where the University of Manchester is also loca ted. However, they’re not only there to study – they also frequently attend the Weekday Masses. These services start at 1.05pm, in careful alignment with the students’ timetable. Amid the hectic bustle of academic life, the students briefly surrender to solemn rituals, age-old hymns and beautiful music, such as that of the distinctive William Hill & Sons or gan.
The instrument was built in 1870 and has been c ontinually restored over the years, receiving constant and effusive praise for its wonderful tone and power. Not least from the students themselves. For them, this organ’s majestic music is their weekly oasis away from the cacophony of everyday noise.
