Database Manager on November 02, 2013:

An original installation. Identified by Steve Bartley, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- Organ stands on an elevated concrete floor front & center in the chapel. A dark wood screen of vertical slats conceals the instrument. The console sits at the right of a divided chancel. The Great and Positive divisions are surrounded by plywood sound reflective enclosures. The overall tone of the organ is clean and mild. The room has good dimensions is all natural stone and the placement of the organ gives delivers the sound in an natural manner. No changes have been made to the instrument, except for a few reservoirs have been restored. The console is in fairly good condition, though the combination action does not always operate correctly, and the "tracker touch" which is achieved by a strip of magnets sitting above the keys, have started to deteriorate. The chests are Schlicker's own electropneumatic design and on very low pressure. The pipes need cleaning and some re-voicing needed to correct speech defects & return the original tone. All flue pipes are scroll or cone tuned except the Viola, which has sleeves.
