The sound and appearance of this organ blend perfectly with the Edwardian gloom of the interior, but contain some gleams of colour in the gold leaf of the case pipes and the delicate pastel tones of the pipe work.
The Vox Humana was added by Brett and later removed for many years. Brett also added the Pedal Echo Bourdon (12 notes). This was increased to 30 notes by SIOC and the Vox Humana reinstated as part of the 1989 restoration.
Retreived from the damaged building before the building was demolished as a result of earthquake damage 2011.
