The rebuild of this Henry Wills III organ - it was originally constructed in 1932 for the Seventh Church of Christ, Scientist, in Kensington, London - is one of the most significant surviving example of his work.  It was designed in conjunction with Harold Darke and the Kensington's church organist & composer Geoffrey O'Connor-Morris.  The splendid case (see photo above) was designed for Emmanuel by Stephen Bicknell.

Music at Emmanuel is further enhanced by the provision of a much smaller, but brand new, Apse Organ, also by the Willis firm.  It is playable from the same console as the West End 1932 Willis.
