With a new cantilevered case of Spanish Cedar for the Great and Pedal and a redesigned chamber layout for the Swell, this 2 manual, 14 stop, 18 rank instrument is both a visual and aural delight. The facade is of polished zinc from the 8' Principal.

The new design more than doubled the size and resources of the previous instrument, adding rich tonal choruses and colors. New slider windchests were designed to fit into a compact space, and yet maintain good access for tuning and maintenance.

The layout of the instrument allows the more than 1,000 pipes to speak clearly into the room. The organ is capable of leading worship very well, as well as performing solo literature.
