+ One of the conditions of English Heritage for the building of the new gallery was that the west window (considered to be the finest in the building) should be fully revealed. This has been achieved by the use of glass for the front of the gallery.
+ The new organ is to have tracker manual action and electric pedal action
+ The organ is to be voiced with the liturgy in mind. Yet able to be used as a solo instrument in its own right
The Swell Organ has shutters on both sides of the south arch and the Great Organ has manually controlled shutters on the gallery side of the north arch thus allowing the organist to adjust the level of sound admitted to the gallery when the choir is performing.
The main pipe display is that of the Great Organ in the north arch. The entrance to the building is on this side and the pipe display was designed to be visually arresting, providing a blaze of colour as people enter the church. To this end the use of flamed copper to the front pipes has been employed, along with silver and green for the other pipes.
