I want this organ as a sample set

I believe St. Thomas used a HW setup while awaiting their new instrument.
I hope they allow the new instrument to become a sample set. It is on of the most complete specs I have ever seen with every stop in the right place for all the literature known to me.

Indeed they did.
And they had commissioned a very fine console for it, which I believe is now being used in the choir room
We attended Evensong on Thanksgiving Day 2016 and heard it.
They were using the Salisbury sample-set, but from where we were sitting near the front of the nave, the sound system was seriously under-powered.

In similar vein, the new 2,000 seat Cathedral in Raleigh, NC is using a Phoenix (Hauptwerk) organ with Lavender Audio's Hereford Cathedral sample set. It can be heard here:

This is temporary install until the new C.B. Fisk, Opus 147 is delivered and erected which will also "be largely influenced by the English Romantic style"!

Fisk is one of my hero builders as well. I've said before I would love any Fisk sample set. Preferably one early Fisk and one more current Fisk.
