Organ enhancements are complete!
This week, our friends from Peragallo Pipe Organ Company completed the enhancements to our pipe organ. Here is a description of the work being done by Peragallo and our partners at Lincoln Pipe Organs:
The body of the console has been completely refurbished, with 28 new stops added, bringing us to a total of 70 stops. Essentially, this increases the number and diversity of sounds available in our organ.
Also added to the console is a new operating system, including a piston sequencer and a playback feature that can be operated remotely.
We've added several ranks of pipes to the organ and several existing ranks were removed and rebuilt so they sound sturdier, bolder, and more symphonic.
The digital components of our organ are all being replaced with state-of-the-art organ pipe sampling technology that adjusts for environmental factors like temperature.
Thank you to our generous parishioners for supporting this investment in sacred music at Saint Peter’s!
