Exeter continuo organ

The new chamber organ for Exeter Cathedral was delivered in January 2008. The casework is of darkly polished Oak, with tin front pipes having gilded mouths. The pipeshades are developed from a Passion flower motif which is featured on the Dean's stall in the Choir.

As with all of our continuo organs, the keyboard can transpose to A=415, 440 and 465, and it is also possible to tune at A=430. The shifting movement pedal facilitates performance of the verse anthem repertoire, and the inclusion of a Principal at four foot pitch gives a choice of colour in the mid range of the instrument.

These organs are in regular use by professional orchestras and in many Cathedrals in the UK, and a three-stop instrument is available for hire. Please contact us to enquire about pricing and availability.
