Elgar: orchestration of large choral works Can't Post

Can anyone tell me what role the organ plays in "The Kingdom" and "The Apostles"? Can it be safely omitted (as in Parry "Blest Pair") as it doubles things?
I'm trying to choose between:
Venue 1: Great organ, but once orchestra and choir are in not a lot of audience space
Venue 2a: No organ - hire in electronic (are there many exposed passages?)
Venue 2b: No organ - do without.
Thanks in advance.
