The Saint Paul’s Organ
Saint Paul’s is fortunate to have for its worship a large pipe organ originally built by the Aeolian-Skinner Organ Company of Boston, MA. Finished in 1956 by G. Donald Harrison, the firm’s famed tonal director, the Saint Paul’s Organ is considered an important instrument, occupying a pivotal role in the history of organ building in the United States. Consisting of pipework by E.M. Skinner, Austin, and Schoenstein, the organ now boasts four manuals and 110 ranks of pipes, playable over 9 divisions. The Organ at Saint Paul’s Church is a treasure of which this parish is extremely proud. On any given Sunday, this great instrument boldly leads hymn singing, subtly accompanies Saint Paul’s acclaimed choir, elegantly renders music by the great masters, and quietly invites the congregation to prayer.
