About the Andover Organ Opus 112
We are very fortunate to have a fine 19-rank, all mechanical pipe organ which supports both congregational and choral singing and inspires through concerts and solo work in the festivals and services of the Episcopal liturgy. Our organ was built and installed by the Andover Organ Co. in 2001. It is hand-crafted of fumed red oak and walnut and contains nearly one thousand speaking pipes on two manual and one pedal divisions. The console is detached from the organ to accommodate direction from the keyboard, but all action is controlled manually without the assistance or interference of electricity. The fan blower is the only electrically operated part of this instrument.
