Milnar Organ 
Company

 

St. Edwards Catholic Church

 Nashville, TN

Project Completed 1994

 

In 1992, Saint Edward Catholic Church underwent a major renovation. The original sanctuary was a long rectangle with low, acoustical tile ceiling. The altar was moved from the original north position to a new west wall. The additional floor space increased the seating capacity from 350 to 600. The increased ceiling height, air space, and hard surface greatly enhanced the acoustical environment. This new 32 rank Milnar Organ replaced an electronic instrument. Choir location, space, and funds dictated the organ's placement. The organ is of unit design with a good deal of thought given to diversity of divisions.

A single bellows supplies 3 1/2 inches of wind to the main chests. The instrument's multi-level solid state memory, adjustable bench, and music rack accommodate visiting organists. Dr. Robert Delcamp from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN gave the dedication recital. Mrs. Susan Rupert sang soprano while Dr. Delcamp played many beautiful pieces.
