About This Project

From its inception, the Gallery Organ was conceived as a replacement for a poorly designed 34-rank pipe organ installed in 1962. The new organ is a 3-manual, 37-rank instrument featuring a Great Division of American tonality.  The Swell Division centers on the design of French organ building while the Choir Division embraces both English and French Choir organ design.

Though each division has its own character, the specification and pipe scales were carefully selected so that the Gallery Organ and Chancel Organ could blend as a full, single instrument.  The organ offers a wide variety of tonal color with clarity and commanding presence for congregational singing.

Mr. John Wigal, Choirmaster/Organist of Church of the Good Shepherd, served as consultant for the project.  A compact disc recording is available upon request.
