Formed 1908: 'Our meetings still follow the basic pattem defined all those years ago, featuring regular recitals, lectures, discussions and instruction on organ and liturgical music, and all aspects of the organ, social meetings of various kinds, plus, of course, regular visits to hear and play organs of note. In recent years, the Association has received financial assistance from Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council for the promotion of a series of recitals on the fine 4 - manual Binns organ in Rochdale Town Hall, restored by J.W. Walker & Sons Ltd. in 1979. This support has enabled the Association to engage some of the top organists in the country to play for us, something which very few Associations are in a position to do’.
