In 1993 a two-manual mechanical action organ instrument of 23-stops, 29-ranks, built by Harrison & Harrison of Durham, England, was installed in the north wall recess. During that year a number of special services and concerts celebrated the installation of the organ. Emmanuel continues to celebrate its wonderful instrument with this concert series.
