& Company (of Stamfordham). It sits at in an open position in the
gallery of the rather plain but acoustically favourable church, and its
delicate, singing intonation is an absolute delight.
Obviously with only twelve stops over two manuals and pedals
Swell, it presents quite a challenge to the organist to play much of
mainstream repertory. However, smaller baroque works work of German and
English nationality work exceptionally well - preludes and fugues by
benefit from the clarity the organ and church afford them, whilst the
organ voluntaries of John Stanley and his contemporaries are made all
more pleasurable by the organ's intimacy and crisp action. A similar
was built in 1979 at Wallsend.
