After five years of research and planning, and thanks to a wonderfully generous benefactor who provided a gift for the purpose, a major project to clean and restore Saint Paul’s noteworthy pipe organ got underway in June 2020. About three-quarters of the instrument’s 6357 pipes have been removed to Cambridgeport, Vermont, where organ builder Russell & Co. will oversee the highly specialized work of restoring them to a “like new” condition. The pipes will be returned to their spaces in an improved and more efficient layout, and various mechanical components will be replaced or restored as required. We expect the work to be completed early in 2023.
