A new roof has been installed over the top of the organ to improve the tonal quality. A new floor has made working in the organ loft safer. The electro-pneumatics have been added. The manuals are due to come out in the next week or so, so that new electrical contacts can be added and the manuals refurbished. I had an opportunity to look at the stops. Made of mahogany covered in graphite. These looked unchanged since the installation of the organ. The stops will remain pneumatic
