New Organ for Chelsea Old Church – July 2018 Update

Assembly of the Chelsea Old Church organ is gathering pace…!

The newly pre-voiced treble of the Choir Principal. The stop is still at low pitch and has a few rough edges allowing for any necessary adjustments in the organ.

The photo below shows the arching of the cut-ups of the Choir Fifteenth.

The choir soundboard seems very low down when you stand on the Great soundboards!
