Opus 44 contract signed
We are excited to announce a contract with The Church of the Epiphany (Episcopal) in New York City for a new three manual tracker organ of 37 voices. Completion is planned for mid-2023. The rough sketch above will be replaced by a finalized visual design in the coming months. See stop list.
Opus 43 is ready to go
Our open house on March 13 was well attended, as documented in these photos and videos. (At that time public gatherings in Utah were restricted to 100 people). Opus 43 is a rebuild of Opus 23, which was returned to our shop
in January 2019 to be rebuilt for St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Healdsburg, California. Progress photos can be seen on our Opus 43 page and also on Facebook.
Robjohn finds a home
We are pleased to announce that, after fifty years of homelessness, the only surviving work of New York organ builder Thomas Robjohn has finally found a home. It is now on permanent display at the Musical Instrument Museum
in Phoenix, Arizona. The 1859 instrument is fully playable, and its gorgeous walnut case, entirely veneered in rosewood, suits it well to this venue where it will be seen more often than heard. See specs
and more photos
on the Opus 37 page
ORGANS FOR SALE
ca. 1900 Cramer
This two-manual reed organ
is certainly a rarity today. It has been thoroughly overhauled, including replacing missing or broken reeds. The sound of the full chorus (16-8-4) is rich indeed.
