Saint Andrew Lutheran Church

Franklin, TN

Project Completed 2010

 

St. Andrew Church in Franklin, Tennessee now has the second-to-last organ built by Aeolian-Skinner. The organ was originally installed in the Episcopal Cathedral of Christ the King in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1970. The specification was by the cathedral organist, Alexander Boggs Ryan. Tonal finishing was by Donald Gilette and Allen Kinsey designed the case, façade, and layout. This organ is the only free-standing, encased instrument built by Aeolian-Skinner.

The organ was purchased in the summer of 2007 by St. Andrew Church. Working a 66-hour week in the ninety-degree, un-air-conditioned Cathedral, a team of nine men from Milnar Organ Co. dismantled, removed and transported the organ to are firm in Eagleville, TN. We systematically repaired, cleaned, updated, renovated and installed the organ in the new nave of St. Andrew Church.

The basic voicing of the organ has not been changed, however some new stops have been added to fill out deficiencies in the specification. The order of the manuals has been changed to the traditional American style. The electrical components of the organ have been updated and brought up to code with a Peterson control system. The project was large and exciting at times on top of the 40 foot scaffolding! We are pleased to have another beautiful instrument installed locally in Franklin. The organ dedication turned out great with the performance of the premier organist Mr. Oliver Latry.
