Organ Specifications

The organ at The Chapel of the Cross was originally built by the Moller Organ Company (op 8546) for St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Fort Worth, in 1953.  When St. Andrews commissioned a new instrument, the Moller was placed in storage.  It was installed at The Chapel of the Cross in 1990 by Range Organ Company. Currently it is maintained by Redman Organ.The current specification of the organ is:

ChoirAt various times the Choir trumpet has been available in other places: on the Great, at the expense of the Great to Great 16 coupler, and on the Pedal, at the expense of the 4 Bourdon.

*These ranks were originally 73 pipes per rank, with the extra top octave used for octave coupling, however when installed at the Chapel, only 61 pipes per rank were installed. Since then a few of these in the Choir have been reinstalled.

** Added in 1990, higher pressure
