The organ (after work)

Exeter Cathedral

H&H 1933, 1965, 2003, based on earlier work by Father Willis, 1891.  The main organ was dismantled in January 2013.  It has been completely reconstructed, with a new layout within the famous Loosemore case, and  new soundboards replace those of 1891.  The original tonal scheme has been retained.  The intention was to achieve a better distribution of sound, together with improved access for tuning and maintenance.  4 manuals,  70 stops.  Click HERE to view the new specification
