The Van den Heuvel organ was originally built for the Duke's Hall in London. Due to a large donation it was replaced by a larger organ and the organ was taken back by Van den Heuvel.

Van den Heuvel organ was purchased in 2014 by the board of the St. Aloysius College in Glasgow.

In spring 2015 the choir gallery in the nave of the beautiful St. Aloysius Church has been enlarged and adapted for the new organ. Also the interior of the church was repainted. Afterwards the installation of the Van den Heuvel organ followed. The organ will be used not only during church services and concerts but also by students of the St. Aloysius College and by students of the Royal Conservatoire.
