    In case no one has checked the Faith Lutheran Blog lately some new pictures were post late October showing the racking of the Great Mixture pipes, the Doppel flute and tuning. It appears things are moving along.

    Be anxious to hear it being played...

    sorry for the delay...

    ..but the holidays took up lots of prep time... and just getting to know this instrument... it will be the cover feature in the February 2012 issue of The Diapason... the organ possesses a great deal of color, and is able to play music from a wide variety of periods... reeds in the swell go from a beautifully blending hautbois, which sounds lovely as part of a fonds registration, to a Trompette of real fire. On the great, a contrasting Trumpet is more of a chorus-topper than a big solo color... on the Positiv, a clarinet sounds wonderfully into the sanctuary below... Mr. Gluck has ensured that each rank speaks well from its lowest to it's highest notes...there always seems to be a way to get the sound you want, and the old method of playing 4' stops down an octave gives even more possibilities for solo color... i will have to record a few things for you when I get my Zoom back from the Pastor!... camcorder audio doesn't cut it! If you are in the neighborhood (one hr from Manhattan) please visit and try out the instrument. best, jgirv
