A tiny organ based on our continuo organ design. The front of the organ is behind glass panels, allowing small swell louvres to be fitted below the music rest. The Salicional has independent pipes from middle c, sharing the lower notes with the Stopped Diapason, and is ideally suited for gentle accompaniment of the nun's chant.

Preston Carmel

This instrument was originally built in 1989 for the Carmelite community at Golders Green, North London. In 2007 the community moved to Preston Carmel.

Instruments with similar concepts have been made for Darlington Carmel, and Turvey Abbey.
