This project began with a simple inquiry into what we might do to make our Gress-Miles organ better. After some proposals to expand the instrument were considered, a new idea arose to replace the medium quality instrument with something splendid and in a style that would be of interest to the organ community near and far. The French Romantic style was chosen as there are few examples of this kind of instrument in the region, and none that we know of which doesn’t contain some sort of compromise such as a modern combination action. Similar in concept to the Cornell Baroque Organ in Anabel Taylor Chapel a block away, which seeks to replicate the experience of a North German organ of 1706, this instrument strives to give the organist the authentic sound and feel of playing an instrument of 21 stops of the late nineteenth century in France.
