Database Manager on August 25, 2007:

Identified through online information from Douglas W. Craw. -- The splendid case of the old Hope-Jones organ now houses the 3 division, 27-rank Gallery Organ, which was built in 1975 by the Schlicker Organ Company in what is essentially a North German tonal design with some elements of French organ sound in the reeds. The Trompeta Real, is mounted horizontally & was installed in 1964. The 3 manual Gallery console also contols a Solo Division made up of 11 ranks of pipework from the 1908 Hope-Jones instrument which are housed in a chamber adjacent to the main organ case.
