From OHTA News April 2007:

John Parker reports the completion of the restoration of a small single manual 3 rank organ built in 1912 by the Positive Organ Company Ltd, London (opus 852) for Macarthur Anglican School. The instrument came from St Barnabas', Anglican Church, Mill Hill Road, Waverley, Sydney.

It has been installed in a music rehearsal studio at the school. This is a large room with reasonable acoustics, and air conditioned year round. The organ is tuned to A440, and will be fun to use for continuo and light accompaniment work.

The specification is:

Manual
Melodic Bass
Open Diapason
Gedeckt
Viole

Octave Coupler
