Major Washington DC church shows plans for new organ
Today, in the Sunday morning service at the First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC, pastor Haggray interviewed organist-choirmaster Dr. Lawrence P. Schreiber about the plans for a new organ, to be manufactured in Hartford CT and installed in the early fall of 2012.
The organ pipes will cover more of the upper areas of the chancel and sanctuary and support choral and congregational singing much more.
A slide presentation showed what the organ will look like.
Schreiber said “Mozart once called the organ the king of instruments.”
