"Regulator" is a common word in theatre organ terminology for bellows. Yes, you can just turn off the tremulants (and the Tibias). 

Many thanks.

I remember hearing Paul Hale play a recital at Walsall Town Hall on the excellent Nicholson and Lord/Compton/Mander/Hawkins organ. He ended with an arrangement by a theatre organist friend of the Widor V final movement interspersed with "When the Saints Go Marching In" theme largely in the pedal. He ussed the wobulation devices (😊) and I recall thinking at the time that is was a shame that there wasn't one on the pedal organ as the 32' reed in particular would have been fun had there been.

The Duet is by Samuel Wesley (son of Charles the hymn writer, brother of Charles the organist, and father of Samuel Sebastian).

The BACH motif lurks here and there in the Fuga, which - unless someone knows better - is surely a first in English organ music.

I am unsure if it has been posted here already but the website of Worcester Cathedral advertises on the concerts page that this year the anniversary organ recital (the 11th) will be given on 05th October by Thomas Trotter who, IIRC, gave the opening concert. 6:45pm start: no clues as to the music at present on Worcester's website.
