In the heart of legal London, Lincoln's Inn Chapel dates from the seventeenth century, and still has original box pews made by one Pryce the Joyner. John Donne laid the foundation stone in 1620.

The new organ stands on a wide and shallow west gallery, flanking the great west window of the building. The Great and Swell divisions are housed in the north case, with attached console. The Pedal division is in the south case, with a central case for the Choir manual set into the gallery rail.
