St. John's organ was installed in 1969 by the Aeolian Skinner Organ Company as its Opus #1517, with 3 manuals, 41 stops, 51 ranks and 2,712 pipes. The divisions were Great, Swell, Positiv and Pedal. In 1992 the original console was replaced by a new 3 manual Austin Organ Company console, with an 8 level Solid State Logic memory system added, and the console was prepared for tonal additions. The SSL memory levels were eventually increased to 32. In 1993, 34 additional digitally sampled voice ranks were added to all divisions by the Robert Walker Technical Company of Zionsville, PA, bringing the total to 85 ranks. In 2004 a complete cleaning and releathering of the instrument was performed by Emory Brothers, Inc. of Quakertown, PA. To learn more, click here...
