Database Manager on September 26, 2007:

Identified through online information from Stephen Hall. -- The organ has two consoles; one in the east transept and one in the rear gallery, both consoles control the entire organ. The transept organ is used primarily for accompaniment, the larger gallery organ provides bigger choruses and more powerful solo stops. Organ is in regular use for services and concerts (2007).
