Updated through online information from Olivia Margaret Ontko. -- Organ is located in front gallery-level chambers with facade pipes visible behind three wrought-iron grilles. Console is located in the rear gallery.
Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Has been used in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. The console was relocated to the gallery to provide more room in the choir loft. Organ in regular use for services (2007).
Updated through online information from William Rowland. -- This organ console is very unusual. There are no stop knobs, nothing that even begins to look like traditional stop pulls or devices. Instead there are push buttons one pushes to bring on or take off a stop. These buttons work in concert with combination actions.
