Organ Update: Organ Blower Removed and Electronic Organ Installed

During the summer choir holiday, our main organ blower, which dates from 1913, is undergoing essential maintenance and restoration. The Rector’s April Chronicle describes this in more detail. We are fortunate in having the Loening-Hancock organ on the gallery, and the Martha Dodge continuo organ in the choir to help lead our worship in the absence of the Arents Memorial Organ. But in order to provide accompaniments for some of the visiting choirs, we have moved the 3 manual Allen Electronic organ from the Choir School and placed it in the choir to be used when necessary.
