  • Mormon Tabernacle Organ

    Hello,

    Are the 32' pipes on the front of the Tabernacle organ speaking pipes or just decorative?

    Thanks,
    HiDesertHal

    They are speaking pipes--made of wood, rounded and gilded to look like metal. Part of the original organ, I believe.

      The 10 or 12 largest fa├žade pipes are speaking as part of the Montre 32'. The rest are dummy pipes.
