About Our Pipe Organ

Our one-manual Pipe Organ of 362 pipes was built by John Brombaugh & Associates, Inc. (fl. 1968-2005) of Eugene, Oregon. This was the last of a batch of six built to this design, their opus 31, and was awaiting a good home when we went looking. It was installed in December 1990 and was first used on Christmas Eve. The Pipe Organ is modeled on north German organs of the 17th century and is tuned in Kellner’s 1/5 comma “Bach” temperament. Its case is of fumed Appalacian white oak, western red cedar, zebra wood and ebony. Oak carvings above the facade pipes represent acanthus leaves, vinca and plum blossoms, all of which happen to grow near the church.
