    Thank you for sharing this, Jards. Was this organ affected by the earthquake a couple of years ago?

        This is a pipe organ. Why is it in this forum? This is for electronic church organs.

          So moved.

          Jards,

          Thanks for the information. Unfortunately, some of us from the up over aren't as familiar with New Zealand's topography as we should be. Sorry.

          It's nice to see churches installing new pipe organs, though.

              The article mentioned more than 5000 pipes, so I think it's a pipe organ.

                  Again, Jards. Thank you for sharing how the organ is alive and well in New Zealand. It is good to see churches obtaining new organs substantial enough to play most of the repertoire available.

                  What is also nice is how the organ incorporates new technologies to the organ world and enhance the organ's presence in the space. A 32' Double Open Wood is a fairly rare animal to have on a pipe organ. I'd imagine it shakes the building as nothing else can. It was also interesting to read the information about the Great & Swell speaking on a higher wind pressure and the effect it has on the stops. I had wondered about it before and heard about it in larger instruments (like the Wanamaker & Atlantic City organs in the USA), but have not seen/heard of it on any of the local pipe organs I'm familiar with. It would be nice to be able to compare that technique with a standardly-voiced single-pressure instrument.

                  Thanks again for sharing information about the new organ!
