TRINITY’S INSTRUMENTS

Casvant Organ, 1978 III/49

Built by the firm of Casavant Frères of Saint-Hyacinte, Québec, Canada, Opus 3380 replaced a Baldwin electronic organ from 1962. That organ had replaced a pipe organ from the 20's. The total cost of the organ at that time was $136,354.15, although the current replacement cost is estimated to be over $1,000,000.

The organ is made up of 36 stops which make up 49 ranks. The total number of pipes is 2,368. There are three 61 note manuals with mahogany naturals and white ivory sharps/flats. The drawknobs and pistons are rosewood.

The dedication worship service was held on October 22, 1978. The organ continues to be used as the principle instrument of use in Sunday worship, and is a cherished and beloved part of Trinity’s worshipping community.
