Rev. Dr. Van Herd on April 11, 2021:

This Seta Music installation utilized 30 pipe ranks from the existing Moeller 3 manual organ. The combination of existing pipes was supplemented with digital organ stops and an array of Allen speakers hidden behind a new facade of pipes. The organist has at his disposal pipe ranks alone, digital ranks alone, or (a) combination of pipe and digital ranks. This organ also features a digital antiphonal division mounted high in the rear of the church, as well as a custom Allen dolly for the new 3 manual Allen console. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------"An Allen pipe/digital combination organ made the most sense for our church. We were able to preserve some of the best features of our pipe organ with the latest features of a digital organ all in one console. It is an exciting instrument of praise for our church, week in and week out." - Michael Sullivan, Organist
