SAINT MICHAEL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH
NEW CANAAN, CT

OPUS 16

2/25

The pipe organ is built in the American Classic tradition with Gennan baroque and French influences. Though including some pipes that are rebuilt from our old instrument, the organ is comprised essentially of new pipes, new design, and new voicing. With the great and positiv divisions of the organ projecting for the first time from both sides of the chancel, we have a larger instrument than before: 24 ranks including 1,157 pipes. The organ chamber houses the swell and pedal divisions and the festival trumpet.

Although fairly small by some standards, St. Michael's Stephen Russell Organ is distinguished by clarity, versatility, a lively tone, careful balance and ensemble effects to which each of its voices contributes. It is responsive to the demands of a wide range of the organ literature.
