The instrument is a three manual / thirty-four stop /
fifty-four rank pipe organ, built by Rieger of Schwartzach Austria, installed
in 1974. Pictured are the Hauptwerke (center), divided pedal towers
with flamed copper facade principals (right and left), schwellewerke behind
the wooden grill (center), and an oberpositiv behind the mounted cornet
(center top). The setter / stop knob action is mechanical and
is connected to an electric stop action. The specification was drawn up
by Klaus-Christhart Kratzenstein and Rieger. Architectural design
by Josef von Glatter-Gotz and voicing by Klaus F. Knoth of Rieger.
The maintenance is performed by Pieter
Visser and Associates of Houston.
