In December 1992 the Parish Church of St. Barnabas, Dulwich, was totally destroyed by fire. A fine new church has been built on the same site by the distinguished American architects Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, and in the early months of 1997 we completed the installation of a new three manual and pedal tracker organ. The instrument stands at the east end of the building, behind the choir stalls, while the altar and worship area are in the centre of the church, below the impressive glass and steel spire.

Altar and organ

The oak organ case stands more than eight metres tall. The front pipes of the Great and Choir are of polished tin, while the l6ft front pipes of the Pedal are of flamed copper, with tin mouths. Much effort was taken to produce warm colours in the flaming process which would integrate with the tones of the stained glass windows which surround the organ.

Angled view of case    Front pipe detail

Inside the case, the Choir division is placed immediately above the console, with the Pedal divided on either side. Above is the Great, the casework of which floats in front and slightly overlaps the pedal pipes. The Swell is enclosed in a substantial box behind the Great at the top level of the instrument.
