Organ Specifications

Our 57-rank, three-manual pipe organ was built in 1970 by Richard Geddes, incorporating pipes from the 1929 Moeller instrument.  In 1983, the organ was extensively revoiced, with a new drawknob console provided by the Austin Organ Company. The organ is the largest and most comprehensive in Northwestern Connecticut and one of the finest instruments in the state. 

          A wonderful gift from the estate of the late Marjorie Goepfert has made it possible to undertake a large-scale rebuild and refurbishment with most of the work completed in December of 2016.

Here are the specifications as it now stands:
