Incense on a grand scale

In the Birmingham Oratory considerable quantities of incense are used, particularly on the feast of Corpus Christi when two thuribles are used creating great clouds before the Blessed Sacrament. So much so this causes problems with the organs, as a thick oily deposit is left on the organ pipes causing them to go out of tune. However, all this pales into insignificance in comparison to this giant thurible in Santiago da Compostela in Spain.
