Campbellsville University-Ransdell Chapel

  Campbellsville, KY

Project completed 2007

 

The chapel organ was built in 1894 by Farrand & Votey of Detroit and installed in Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, TN. Initially, it was a modest, yet pioneering instrument of approximately fifteen ranks driven by a water pump (furnishing wind pressure) and batteries (providing electrical current for the key action). In the century to follow, the organ was converted to electrical power (1906) and enlarged by Pilcher and Moller organ companies, with new ranks of pipes and consoles. Over the past quarter century, Milnar Organ Company has maintained the organ and overseen its enlargement to its present size of 51 ranks and 3,014 pipes. For its move to Campbellsville University, the console was converted to solid-state and received organ additions of a Trumpet-En-Chamade and a zimbelstern by "Friends of the University".
