The Father Willis Studio 50 is a typical comprehensive three manual instrument that might be found in a number of larger churches or a smaller cathedral. 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.

Rationale: The Great III Mixture from the 40 is replaced by a IV rank to add extra sparkle and so as not to be overwhelmed by the additional 16' and 4' reeds provided. The Swell gains a 16' flue and a couple of extra reeds. Although a 16' String might be thought to be more useful than a Bourdon (which would have been labeled Double Diapason originally), the Contra Fagotto has less body than the additional Waldhorn 16' found in the larger specifications and benefits from the thickening effect of adding the Bourdon. It was felt that the CF 16 as it stands was far more useful than providing a thicker sounding alternative and thus allowing for a 16' String. The rationale behind the other string stops follows that of the 40. As regards the Choir, the provision of a 16' Dulciana redresses the lack of a 16' String in the Swell as does the Vox Angelica. Although a 2' Principal would be desirable in addition to the Piccolo, other stops were considered more useful and were included to give body to what would have otherwise been a rather thin ensemble. The provision of a second beating rank within the specification allows for the Vox Humana etc. to be used against a quiet string accompaniment. The Pedal organ gains a 4' reed at the expense of an additional 16' but was felt to be more useful in the long run.
