ST. ANNE'S ORGAN

Photo of the four manual Allen custom organ

When the time came to replace our aging and failing Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, St. Anne's researched purchasing a new pipe organ and adding a digital console. After hearing digital and hybrid (digital with pipe) instruments at other parishes in the area, we contracted with Allen Organ, one of the largest church organ companies in the world, to create a completely custom digital instrument. 

 

Every part of the instrument, from the console to the pedals and the voices were custom-tailored to our needs and voiced to our space. 

The 4-manual console features custom woodwork, including the oak finished exterior cabinet, a walnut finished interior, rosewood and maple drawknobs, rosewood keys and rosewood and maple pedals. The organ also has an adjustable bench and music rack, and the Allen Vista Navigator: A digital computer that expands the capabilities of the organ, giving us access to additional instrument voices, settings, and MIDI capabilities.
