Antiphonal installation

The Op. 50 Antiphonal division is installed! The cases and pipes are at home in Lexington, a teasing presence of the rest of the instrument to come. (The control systems, blower, and console are still on their way.) We probably received the most celebratory welcome ever: a full procession with robed choir, bag piper and a liturgy blessing the organ.

The church took both live webcast video and still time-lapse photos of the installation, available here:

We’ll be back on May 6th to install half of the front organ (and pick up more bourbon…)
