GALLERY – REGAL, MARBLE ARCH
Regal,
Marble Arch
Although the vast majority of the organ was crammed into the chamber on the right side of the auditorium, the instrument's 32-note Carillon (from middle C to g3) had the left chamber all to itself! As a true Carillon, its notes sounded a prominent minor third. Folklore has it that this peal of bells was, originally, to be installed on the building's roof, so it could ring out over Hyde Park. However, planning permission was not forthcoming, so "the Regal chimes" - as they became known - were installed in the organ instead. It's impossible, now, to determine the veracity of this story.
