St. 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 St. 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 is a treasure of which St. Paul’s is extremely proud. On any given Sunday, this great instrument boldly leads hymn singing, subtly accompanies St. Paul’s acclaimed choir, elegantly renders music by the great masters, and quietly invites the congregation to prayer.

In 2020 the organ was partially removed to undergo significant renovation during 2020-2024.  Check  here for progress updates.
