Tracker key action : Mechanical stop action : Slider soundboard

 

A small church organ built to a simple yet elegant design. The action is mechanical, with the small electric blower contained in the lower section of the instrument. The casework is of American White Oak, finished with a dark stain and oil polish to blend with the furnishings of the Chapel, while the keys are covered with Kingwood on the naturals and the sharps are of solid Pearwood.

The fretted pipeshades were designed by Derek Riley, and are cut from solid White Oak. The rather striking design depicts water, reeds, and fish, symbols of Christian life, and of Baptism in particular.
