Contributed by John Igoe, based on an article in the OHS Hilbus Chapter Newsletter, February 2019. The organ was designed by Gerald Piercey. The installation is in an angle behind the choir seating area and had to allow for a structural beam that curves up through the Swell enclosure. The Great and Pedal Bourdon is arranged, divided, on both sides of the Swell. The bottom 12 notes of the Great Principal, made of copper, forms a façade in front of that division. The organ has a very pleasing sound in the acoustically dead room. At the time the organ was being built Charles McManis conducted a voicing workshop for company staff and participated in some of the voicing and regulation of this instrument. The unification scheme provides great versatility for playing organ literature within the limits of a small number of ranks.
