This luxuriously appointed pipe organ features both an Orchestral Division and a String Ensemble in addition to the more standard Great, Swell, Choir, Solo and Pedal divisions. In response to the extremely challenging acoustics of the room, the organ has been equipped with a Lexicon reverberation system. Subtle application of this effect lends both warmth and added realism to the instrument. [Colby web site]
