The English Cathedral Series, Volume 12


In 1878, the firm of T. C. Lewis of Brixton built an organ for Ripon Cathedral. By 1912, the Lewis organ was deemed to be in need of rebuilding and Harrison & Harrison rebuilt the organ between 1912 and 1926. The most recent addition to the organ was in 2000, when a remote digital console with many additional features was donated. The second console duplicates and augments the console still on the screen. The Ripon case, however, features a “digital” feature of another sort from 1695 when a carved wooden hand was added to the case. A rebuild had prevented the organist from being in sight of the choir and the carved hand could be operated using a lever on the console, thus keeping musical forces in time with each other!
