St. John’s Organ

Praise the Lord!
Praise him with trumpets,
Praise him with strings and pipes.
Praise the Lord, all living creatures!

About the Organ

Casavant Frères, Opus 3780 (1999)

The organ was built by Casavant Frères of St. Hyacinthe, Québec, and installed in July of 1999. While clearly intended for use in a liturgical setting to accompany congregational singing and to present music of the Lutheran tradition, the instrument is designed with the capacity to serve as a vehicle for many styles and structures of musical composition.

The organ has two manuals and pedalboard, the swell being under expression, and consists of a total of seventeen stops and twenty-one ranks for a total of 1223 pipes.
