Milnar Organ 

University of The South - St. Luke's Chapel
 Sewanee, TN

Project Completed 1993


This new Milnar 18-rank organ incorporates some pipes from All Saints Chapel's original Pilcher organ and an earlier hand-pumped organ from Saint Luke's of unknown origin. The organ is enclosed in two 20' tall quarter-sawn oak cases on both sides of the stained-glass window and a hand-carved reredos of quarter-sawn oak framing; canvas paintings of the 12 apostles with Christ in the center. This instrument will serve as a teaching instrument as well as a performance instrument. With this in mind, we built the wind chests with plexiglass bottom boards to enable the students to see the action in operation, as well as the movement of the bellows, swell machine, tremolo, and winkers.

The console is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including full MIDI with playback capability. This allows the students to compose and record his or her OPUS on their keyboard and computer in their dorm. The next day insert the disk in the organ's sequencer, sit back in the audience, and see if it sounds as good as it did the night before.
