Arundel (UK) | Poor Clares

In the sober chapel of this Franciscan convent, the only possible site to place the organ was at the back. The console of the organ was placed at the back and the organist has a direct side view of the altar enabling her to remain a part of the community. The specification is particularly well suited to its liturgical tasks : the second manual with its sole 8'-stop in transmission accompanies the cantor, and allows a quick change in the dynamics without having to change stops.


The Bourdon and Salicional stops may be played alone or together to adjust the volume to accompany the meditative chant of the community.  


The stoplist is enriched with the trebles of the mutations which were often used in the English organ literature for manuals and which are useful in preludes, interludes and postludes in the liturgy.
