The new Cantata 226 is specifically designed for the church where sound quality is the paramount consideration.
This organ has a carefully chosen specification of 26 speaking stops that is adequate for most small to medium size churches. The emphasis is entirely on the quality of tone with all stops independently generated including individual mixture ranks. In addition to the British specification it also contains three other alternative specifications: French; German and Dutch.
The Cantata has a high quality, robust oak console built in the "Shaker" style. It looks impressive with and abundance of solid oak, oak slat roll-top, integral music desk and pedalboard lighting, but it is what lies beneath the surface that really sets this organ apart: an extensive generator system for optimal quality of individual voices and six high powered channels of external audio providing a flexible separation between organ ranks and departments.
The organ can be ordered with a number of options including stop tabs, illuminated drawstops, or motorised action draw stops and reverse colour wood keys. The audio system is customised at time of order to suit each application. If required it can also be fitted with an internal monitor system with both systems being easily controllable enabling the organist to accurately judge the resulting sound of the organ. Fitted with a comprehensive piston control system with departmental and general pistons, it can also be fitted with toe pistons at additional cost. The organ is voiced and tonally finished on site to suit the building acoustic.
