Music for the Court of Louis XIV

This magnificent organ built by Casavant was inspired by the Classic French tradition as practiced by composer-musicians Couperin, Dandrieu, Corrette, and the great organbuilder Cliquot. The specification is rich with solo voices and mutations allowing authentic registration of that tremendous literature, and the wide variety of reeds from Voix Humaine to Trompette-en-chamade provide both color and powerful pizzazz.

The organ’s cases are appointed with contemporary elements but inspired by classic design. The keyboard actions are mechanical and the stop action is electric with a solid-state combination action.

One of the organ’s most important features is the large and complete Positiv division mounted on the balcony rail behind the organ bench. This provides a secondary chorus and complete set of mutations to complement the Grand Orgue with the added dimension of spatial contrast as the Positiv is so much closer to the listener.

But don’t think you’ll be stuck in France. With multiple Principal choruses, enclosed reeds, and a strong independent Pedal division, this organ is ideal for the performance of most organ music.

The organ is still in its original location and ready for your visit. We look forward to your inquiry.
