Some of the Carmel Organ dates from the original 1926 Austin (18 ranks). In 1955, twelve more ranks were added. The 30 ranks left much to be desired tonally. The Lord did indeed bless us in 1993 when renowned organ-voicer Bruce Shultz rescaled and revoiced the organ (no pipes discarded). The next major project was in 1998, with the addition of many digital ranks by Walker Technical Co., with voicing by Mr. Walker and Mr. Shultz.
Today, the organ is considered one of the very finest for its size in the entire suburban Philadelphia area. It was in much need of mechanical and electrical work and it was totally brought up to date in every way in the winter of 2009. It is now a virtually “perfect” instrument and we resume our yearly Tuesday Noon Recitals (A.G.O.) in October. Organists love to play the Carmel Organ and hundreds of people love to hear it! Carmel’s acoustics and the placement of the organ add to its fine sound.
