Middlesbrough (UK) | Saint Mary's Cathedral

The specification of this instrument, enriched with a very soft string stop, was patterned on the classical English baroque organ. Even the Werkaufbau has been built according to the models of the 18th century: one organ with a lower case organ and a Pedal organ at the back.

 

The flats in steps of the asymmetrical façade follow the roof slope of the building which is conceived as a shell. The case and the pipe shades are hand-carved of light colored ash in a modern abstract style. In order to enliven the side view, the inner elements of the side panels have been designed in herringbone-fashion.
