The organ sits in the front of the chancel, slightly elevated, in a rather ornate oak case. The façade pipes were originally multicolored (some traces of original paint remain on the backs of some pipes) but are now painted white with gold mouths. In order that the organist could have some sightline to the choir to the left of the organ, the Swell is angled 45 degrees from the Great and keydesk.
