Ortloff Organ Company shares the happy news of the signing of an agreement with St Alban’s Episcopal Church in Cape Elizabeth, Maine to build our Opus 3, a two-manual, 19-stop, 25-rank organ – our largest instrument to date.
We have worked closely with rector Tim Boggs, director of music Joel Pierce, and the St. Alban’s organ committee to design an instrument geared principally toward accompanying the Episcopal liturgy. The church took the bold step of placing the new organ front and center as part of an overall worship space redesign process, undertaken by Terry Eason. The new organ case, of quarter-sawn white oak, echoes the spare lines of this mid-century edifice, accented with pipeshades of bold red.
Detailed design work will begin early next year, construction will start in Summer 2020, and installation is expected in early 2022.
