Quimby Pipe Organs Inc.
St. Paul's Evangelical Church
The pipe organ for St. Paul's Evangelical Church is a two-manual instrument of 29 ranks based on an eclectic design. The concept does not copy any historical style of organ building. The tonal design is a synthesis, resulting in a concept that is distinctly American. The new organ replaces the 1961 Moller organ (14 ranks - 767 pipes).

The tonal specification was designed in consultation with Lois Percival, organist and director of music, and the six member organ committee. The instrument features Blackinton-Johnson style electro-pneumatic slider windchests and electro-pneumatic pouch windchests for the Festival Trumpet and pedal ranks.

The organ contains 1,641 pipes, of which 137 were retained from the previous instrument and revoiced for the new tonal specification. The metal pipes are constructed of various alloys of tin and lead for those shorter than 4' in length and a zinc alloy for pipes longer than 4' in length. Several ranks are constructed entirely of wood including the pipes of the pedal 16' Bourdon and 16-8' Gedeckt.

The visible casework is constructed of oak and contains polished zinc pipes with mouths of polished tin for the center sections. Pipes 1-11 of the great 8' Principal and Super Octave are located in the organ case.

The Möller console from the previous installation was retained and refinished, but rebuilt with solid state controls. The key and stop functions are controlled by a solid state Peterson multiplex relay system. The solid state Peterson combination action has 32 levels of memory. A Peterson complete MIDI with sequence recorder has been provided.
