The Phoenix Organ installed in this Anglican church is a 40 stop, three manual lighted, tilting, stop-tablet model with 8 audio channels.
Art Vanderleer, organ committee chairman, installed the speakers and Phoenix western Canadian representatives, Steve and Deb Koning were on hand to oversee the installation.
The Nave is about 75 feet in diameter and a perfect circle. While there was some concern that the acoustic might be difficult due to a ricochet effect, the outcome was very satisfying. Speakers were mounted high on the wall over the choir and console, and the sound pressure level is even throughout the sanctuary. The AcoustiCubes, for the manual Divisions, provide a 360 degree, non-directional sound dispersion.
