How will this organ sound?
The Möller has a magnificent sound that captures the thrill of a raging full organ and the mystical strains of celestial strings. A unique feature of the design was to enclose the large trumpet stop (type of sound) and all but three stops in the pedal division behind expression shades. This gives the instrument a tremendous advantage by allowing for full organ sound when the shades are open but also an intense soft sound when closed.
The organ will be installed in Holy Trinity’s gallery where it will be free to speak down the long, vaulted barrel ceiling of the church. It will be playable from the original console located in the gallery or from a chancel console at the front of the church. The best pipes from Holy Trinity’s previous instruments, the Möller opus 9453 and the 1881 Roosevelt organs, will be installed in the chancel chambers, offering additional flexibility for organ concerts and accompaniment for services and choral concerts. In the words of the organ builder, Adam Dieffenbach, principal of the acclaimed Emery Brothers firm, “This organ will be really fun to play!”
