Please join us for the Meta Virtual Pipe Organ dedication recital at Gilead Lutheran Church. The Gilead organ is quite conceptually humble, but still packs a punch. It plays the 1902 two-manual Cavaille-Coll organ that exists at St. Eucaire (Metz, France), that has been locked down with traditional standard hardware rocker tabs. We’ve translated it into English and for practical service playing, but you can see the original organ in beautiful graphics and access a plethora of control and recording features via a monitor. This organ proves that starting with a great, albeit relatively modest, pipe organ from one of the great masters of our craft, can translate across time and liturgy to serve as a solid and inspiring normal parish organ.” Please join us for an open console on Saturday April 21st from 9am to 12pm at Gilead Lutheran Church in Brunswick, NY where you can play the organ and Dan will be available to answer any questions you may have.
