But oh! what art can teach,
What human voice can reach
The sacred organ’s praise!
Notes inspiring holy love,
Notes that wing their heav’nly ways
To join the choirs above.
~ John Dryden (1631-1700)
St. Paul’s treasured 1929 Skinner organ may be heard weekly at St. Paul's in liturgies and concerts. Whether in voluntaries, improvisations, choral accompaniments, or hymnody, the 1363 pipes of the St. Paul's organ are truly a heavenly sound.
The 2011-12 restoration of the organ prepared for wonderful additions to the organ. Contact Director of Music Susan Jane Matthews if you are interested in more information about underwriting a Tuba, Sesquialtera, or Zimbelstern for the St. Paul’s Organ.
