St. Louis, MO 63104 US
Sanctuary; rear gallery
Organ ID: 69978
This entry represents the installation of a new organ. Listing Pfeffer as the builder is assigned but not fully confirmed. Examination of the organ by St. Louis organ builder Christopher Soer on an episode of the Organ Media Foundation revealed that the first spotted metal pipes of both the Great 8' Open Diapason and the 4' Octave were marked JGP&S. The Great 8' Melodia also appears to be older pipework. The casework is clearly older than the subsequent 1928 Wicks rebuild and later 1930's Kilgen additions. The church dates from 1897.
Kilgen added a new blower in 1925 as their project number 3427. The confiming document is dated April 7, 1925. The unit was a 1/2 h.p. blower.
