Following a lightning strike in May 2018 which damaged all the electrical components of the organ, as well as the church, Harrison and Harrison Ltd replaced and upgraded the 1950s internal wiring with solid state, and the electrics of the console with multi-level memory capture system and MIDI.

All of this has further increased the resources of an already versatile instrument, which is ideally suited to the accompaniment of our wonderful professional choir in music from the Anglican choral tradition and beyond, as well as being a fine recital organ in its own right.

Those who like statistics will be interested to know that there are four manuals, 98 speaking stops, close to 4000 pipes, and that the “wind” is provided by four blowing installations! Download the full organ disposition (pdf).
