This two manual and pedal church organ is built with mechanical action throughout. The case is of American White Oak, with keys covered in Boxwood and Ebony. All the manual pipes are placed on a common windchest with the two divisions separated by swell shutters in the centre of the case. The Subbass is freestanding behind. The pipeshades, which depict Vines on the side flats, and the Madonna Lily in the centre tower, were carved in Lime by Derek Riley of Lyndale Woodcarving.
