The Organ
The organ is situated in the chancel and contains hundreds of pipes of all sizes. When the organist plays a note, air travels by means of bellows to a certain pipe. The air vibrates in the pipe, making a sound that may be anything from a high-pitched whistle to a deep, low-pitched note, depending on the size of the pipe - the largest pipe producing the lowest note, and so on.

The organist uses his hands on the three keyboards, and his feet on the pedals beneath the keyboard. The 'stops' beside the keyboards control the varieties of tone so that the organ may copy various musical instruments, both wind and string.
