"NEW" PIPES FOR OUR HISTORIC ORGAN
Our historic organ, built in 1870, has some “new” pipes. The pipes in the trumpet stop were not original to the O’Dell organ. They were replaced at some point in time with a French style set of pipes. Now we have made a swap of pipes with a Lutheran Church in Regina to an English style set that is more compatible with the O’Dell pipes. These pipes were manufactured in 1856 by Johnson and Son Organ Company of New York, so they are actually older than the original O’Dell pipes. Organist Rick Vander Woude says “The sound seems to be fitting and it's giving a little bit more of that rounder brilliance to the full organ sound."
