Specialist 'Voicers' Stephen Leslie and Kerry Bunn from the USA were engaged to
complete the meticulous task of Final Tonal Regulation for each pipe in the organ

This process requires two people: one to listen critically from the organ console,
and another in the organ chamber to change the volume and tonal characteristics as required

A full week of work, from 9am to 6pm each day!  
Each of the 742 pipes can now combine to 'form an elegant and cohesive ensemble'
