At present the organ is unsable, since the pneumatics have failed I t is currently being restored. The Choir manual is being modified along with the other manuals so that it will be abl;e to be coupled to some stops. This will increase the capability of the organ.

1910 J.W. Walker installed the new organ in the North Transept Loft above the Chapel of the Holy Spirit
