This magnificent instrument, dormant, silent and forlorn for over ten long years, is now once again sounding forth in all her Victorian glory. Surrounded by a raging conflagration one dark and stormy November night, the church was rescued when thousands of gallons of water were trained on the church to protect it from the flames. The water managed to find its way through the organ rendering it profoundly mute some feared permanently. Valiant fund raising efforts enabled the organ, at last, to receive the ministrations required to make her sing again. The end result is an instrument of surprising grandeur and color. We are proud of our contribution to the resurrection of this sleeping beauty.
