This small church organ and Opus 9 were both built to the same design, the only difference being that a pedal Subbass was provided for the Princes Risborough installation. The cases are made of oiled American White Oak and have key coverings of Boxwood and Ebony. The slightly unusual two manual scheme is designed to meet the responsorial requirements of post Vatican II liturgy. The consultant to the church was Dr. John Rowntree.
