Console

The console shell and pedalboard were retained from the previous Reuter organ installation as they were constructed of quarter sawn oak and built to match the present wainscot in the chancel.  The console interior is done in walnut.  The console was fitted with new tracker touch keys in bone naturals and African Blackwood sharps.  The console is fitted with Maple stop keys and engravings.  A new Solid State Logic capture action system is provided with 10 levels of memory.


Windchests

The windchests are electro-pneumatic to provide good and ample wind for proper pipe speech.  Wind for the main chests is regulated via a wedge bellows and discrete concussion winkers.  This provides a gentle flex to the wind for the organ to enhance the spirited voicing of the instrument.


Façade

The two balanced facades encase the new organ above the present wainscot wall.  This raises the position of the organ to a prominent projection position in the room and completes the focal point of the chancel.  The previous Reuter organ was entombed behind the wall with a small tone opening in the ceiling of the chamber.  The cases carry through the Gothic design of the chapel and are built of oak.  The 16' reed is in polished copper and is exposed against the case turn backs on each side of the window.


Relay

A new solid-state relay system by Solid State Logic (SSL) will be included in this proposal.  An SSL MIDI interface system will be provided.


Sound

The organ is designed to accommodate regular services, weddings and funerals.  The organ offers a warm foundation indicative of English choral instruments.  The mutations, flutes, and Klein Trompet offer a number of possibilities for literature and wedding services.  Congregational singing remains a crucial focus with the voicing of the Principal Chorus.  Congregational support is a key factor in the design and voicing of all of our instruments.
