2 Manuals, 24 Ranks
Long known for its acoustically fine chapel and outstanding concert choir, Emory & Henry College was nevertheless possessed of an aging pipe organ that had been allowed to fall into such a state of disrepair as to be almost hopeless.
Knowing that our electro-pneumatic slider-and-pallet chests would allow the old organ's existing pipework to speak on the higher pressure to which it was voiced, we decided to incorporate some ranks with new pipework to create a more modern organ. Because each of the organ spaces were surrounded on three sides by outside wall, we determined that it would be in the interest of tuning stability, if the organ were confined to one chamber on the shaded side of the building.
Our new organ serves teaching, accompanying, and concert roles, and provides accompaniment to services of the Emory United Methodist Church, which meets there weekly.
