TOUR OF THE RIEGER ORGAN
The Rieger organ of four manuals and 68 speaking stops, was installed in the latter half of 1999, by a team from Schwarzach in Southern Austria, the home of the famous organ builder, Rieger Orgelbau. It is composed of two sections, the main organ located in the North Transept and the smaller Gallery organ at the Collins Street end of the Church. All divisions may be played from the main console. The organ was dedicated on Sunday 28th November 1999, at a Service which commemorated the 125th Anniversary of the opening of the present Scots’ Kirk.
The instrument is located behind the original cedar case built in 1874, to house the previous organ. The case has been restored and resited forward and higher than its original position, so exposing its full dimensions, probably for the first time. The case is a fine example of the work of the architect Joseph Reed.
