We have completed the recording of the dedication recital which was performed on this organ in July of 2007. Click the links below to listen or right click and save them to your computer. The organist is Diane Aiken, daughter of current organist Ward Moberg.
Here is a closer view of the casework. There will be neutral colored grille fabric from the ceiling down to the black horizontal beam to conceal the swell shades and non-decorative pipes of the great division. The facade pipes are painted gold and will stand between the uprights infront of the black supports.
The stencilled facade pipes from the original organ were found in the attic of the church. These are non-speaking pipes. The paint and gold leaf are well preserved although the pipes are stained from being leaked on.
Today we got the swell wall and shades put up, the wiring run and connected, the blower installed and played the first notes as we blew and vacuumed out the windchests. Not as much visible progress today but lots of little things were accomplished.
