The Christ Church organ was built by Hill, Norman & Beard in 1970 with 16 stops, using some pipes from previous organs plus some neo-baroque sounds typical of the 1960's and '70's (Chimney Flute and Fifteenth on open-foot voicing, like the Royal Festival Hall organ).
In 1995, HNB moved some loud stops from the Great to a new double case in the nave, 6 stops were added, and the tone was refined.
Britten's Prelude and Fugue on a Theme of Vittoria
is performed here in the Church of St Thomas,
Fifth Avenue, New York.
