Our Organ

The organ at Christ’s Church is really two organs – one located in the Chancel and the other in the Gallery. Both are controlled from an all-electric console near the Chapel. The Chancel organ is primarily designed for accompaniment and contained two divisions – the unenclosed Great, and the Choir under expression. The Gallery organ is for congregational singing, preludes and postludes, and recital playing. It contains an unenclosed Great as well as Swell and Choir divisions under expression. 

The tonal design of the instrument is on neo-baroque lines, beloved of the era, but also includes sounds appropriate for a wider variety of repertoire.

The organ was built in 1964 by Austin Organs, of Hartford, Connecticut, designed by long-serving Organist Felix McGuire, and given by Mr. and Mrs. John Ellis Knowles.
