Father Willis  Studio 40

The Father Willis Studio 40 is a comprehensive three manual instrument that might be found in a larger church. The specification offered includes additions such as mutations in the Choir together with a more comprehensive Pedal department that might have been incorporated in a typical mid 20th. century rebuild by Henry Willis III. for those with 2 manual consoles, the Choir Organ can be set up as a floating division.

Rationale: The Great is fairly straight forward and ties in with the majority of FW instruments with the exception of the Mixture which would most likely have been 17 19 22.  Since this would be a duplication of the Swell Mixture, it was felt more in keeping with today's tastes as well as providing an alternative to the Swell Mixture w have therefore supplied a Quint Mixture. The Swell would have had a Salicional and a flat tuned Vox Angelica in the typical specification of the time but a century later or so, a more incisive string sound and a sharp tuned Celeste is usually preferred especially for the rendition of French music. The Choir is pretty much standard as a later development in a rebuild and provides more flexibility with a palette designed to fulfil a  larger repertoire as well as fulfilling the needs of typical Anglican accompaniments in services. The Pedal is very much extended from the normal FW design and perhaps some might prefer a 4' reed instead of the 32' However, the likes of St Bees and other instruments in our cathedrals often follow suite and there is sufficient facility within the couplers to provide for a 4' pedal reed when it is needed for chorale preludes etc. The 32' adds just that extra little dimension to the whole.
