The new organ
The new organ for St George’s by Richards, Fowkes & Co of Ooltewah, Tennessee, USA is, as far as we know, the first American built organ in London and one of very few and the first for a long time in the UK. Indeed it is one of only a handful in Europe as a whole. With 46 speaking stops and 2,968 pipes (arranged over three-manuals and pedals) the comprehensive specification allows it to play a wide range of music. The organ is housed in the restored west gallery case used for the first organ of 1725, which was subsequently expanded in 1896.
