Organ Specifications

The Church’s Organ

Built by the Wicks Organ Co., Highland, IL 1982, with subsequent additions. Refurbished and Revoiced by: E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Co., Lithonia, GA, 2006

86 Ranks, 4 Manual and Pedal Console

In St. Mary’s Chapel, there is a two-manual, two-rank Moeller Organ that is used during various Holy Days, and regularly during Advent & Lent.

The Choir Room houses a two-manual, 6-rank Zimmer.  This organ is currently for sale. Please inquire for details:  sbranyon@stjohnssav.org

Many ranks are extended and are borrowed. These are now listed. Also, there are many ranks listed that are now electronically reproduced by the Walker Company.  The Bassoon 16’ & 32’ original pipes have collapsed and have long since been removed from the organ case.  The Oboe 8’ still sits on the case, but are taped up because they were deemed unstable and could not be used.  The other electronic stops were added due to cost and because of limited chamber space. These ranks include: the Tuba 8’; Bombard 32’-16’-8’ & 4’; the Contra Principal 32’; Bourdon 32’ & the Open Wood 16’.
