Glass    The two Early English Organ Project organs, based on the Wetheringsett and Wingfield fragments, were in residence in 2008. 
The Wetheringsett organ  (in the Quire) was used regularly in Friday Evensongs, and the Wingfield organ (in the Galilee) with men's voice Evensongs.  The organs have now been transferred to a residency in St.Paul's Cathedral, and since elsewhere.
