The instrument has 21 speaking stops and 1,312 pipes ranging in length from 16 feet to 1/2 inch. It uses all the pipework from the original 1885 organ built by Franklin Lloyd of Liverpool, with several hundred new pipes added. It is an effective accompanimental instrument (including frisky hymn tunes) and is versatile in coping with the organ repertoire.

The Inaugural Recital was given by Professor Ian Tracey, Organist Titulaire of Liverpool Cathedral.
