The Phoenix Organ in Dore Abbey (Herefordshire) has three manuals and pedals, and a floating Solo division.  The instrument has attracted very positive comments from the staff at the Abbey, members of the congregation and visitors.  This instrument incorporates components from our demonstration instrument installed in 2005.  The permanent installation in the Abbey was completed early in 2006.
