A major fillip was given to music at Armagh when King Charles I, by royal charter, instituted the "the college of King Charles in the church of St Patrick in Armagh". In 1482 the Cathedral had the first of its seven organs. The present Walker organ was installed in 1840 and has been restored on a number of occasions, the last, in 1996, giving it a new resonance and flexibility of range and tone.'
