Festive Dedication: The Organ at Saint Andrew's

Saint Andrew's is a new church (built 2009) that has installed a newly rebuilt and expanded (originally Reuter) organ by master builder, Philip Swartz and Associates. Designed for the 3-second reverberation of the nave, there are 57 stops in 5 divisions over 3 manuals. Artists who have already played recitals: Terry Yount (dedication, 2010); Deniz Uz (young artist recital, 2010); Samuel Metzger (2010); Dr. George McPhee (Paisley Abbey, Scotland, 2011). The organ and neo-gothic sanctuary were featured in the February 2010 issue of The Diapason. 

The program includes music from the dedication recital, plus additional tracks to fill out the entire 69-minute recording. Copies may be ordered at the church, 407-328-1139 or Cost with shipping is $15.
