The core of the present instrument is Austin Organ Company's Opus 2370. The original Universal Windchests are employed in the Great/Swell/Pedal divisions. Electro-mechanical windchests are used in the Positiv, Antiphonal, Swell and Pedal divisions. Walker Digital voices augment all divisions and completely form the Choir and Solo divisions.
