St Bartholomew’s United Church, Quorn

The organ has been transformed by re-ordering the chamber and adding the two strings, Principal and Cornopean ranks to the Swell, and the chorus Trumpet to the Great. The original case panelling, which faced west and was unseen from the church, has been modified to fit perfectly within the chancel arch.
