Trinity Episcopal Church
The organ draws its inspiration from the work of one of America’s first eighteenth-century organbuilders — David Tannenberg. When building organs for the instrumental-based ensemble requirements of the Moravian church tradition where the the organ rarely performed solo but needed to provide harmonic structure or supply a missing part for chamber-music ensembles, the instruments were designed to provide both background accompanimental support as well as the richness of full-sized organ foundation tone with both color and nobility. The organs were not miniaturized or big organs with parts left out but were in essence the only organs of the late-baroque era designed to function solely as a continuo instrument. Sometimes the greatest inspiration of all is found in our own back yard.
