Fixed choir stalls can limit the forms taken by contemporary worship and the wide range of musical and community events which take place in churches. The result is that many churches are now commissioning more flexible seating which is still capable of fulfilling the needs of choirs. Treske have made a number of handsome replacements, many with innovative technical features.
Major good fortune enables Holy Trinity to undertake a complete reorder, including sanctuary, choir and nave furniture from Treske.
Treske designed and made 163 St Wilfrid chairs and armchairs, two Deacons’ chairs, one president’s chair, together with a lectern, six servers’ stools, six benches for the choir, four choir frontals and four choir readers.
A full set of Sanctuary furniture including an altar, credence table, lecterns, choir stalls and clergy desks and other dignitary seating were designed and made by Treske for Manchester Cathedral.
