— Maestro Ennio Morricone (10 Sept 2009)

The organ builders also reconstructed part of the organ case. Pictures were taken during the restoration process and can be found on the Facebook page of the Choir of King’s College.

A new feature has been added to the chapel organ. This cool “Pedal Divide” feature allows the organist to play the bass line and a solo line on the pedals at the same time, which means splitting the pedalboard into half with two different registrations. This feature can also be found on the organ in Notre Dame de France. Here is one of King’s College’s organ scholars introducing the “Pedal Divide” feature:
