Sanctuary Organ
ABOUT THE PIPE ORGAN
Dauphin Way United Methodist Church's pipe organ is a four-manual and pedal instrument containing 71 ranks of pipes. The pipe organ is designed to fulfill a wide range of musical and liturgical functions. The instrument is not intended to copy any one particular school or period of pipe organ building, but rather to be capable of playing the wide-range of liturgical requirements in worship, and music from all periods and national schools. The tonal specification was drawn up by Michael Quimby in consultation with Colleen Kelsey Hicks, Organist.
 
The casework, is matched to the classical architecture of the church. In particular, the casework of the Antiphonal division is modeled on the Greek revival cases produced in the middle of the nineteenth century by American organ builders such as the Hook Brothers of Boston. Tonally the instrument is unusual in a number of ways. First, it has four enclosed manual divisions. Secondly, the 32' and 16' reed ranks are full-length. There are no "digital" electronic ranks. The instrument contains certain features of the "Symphonic" style of pipe organ, prized in the early twentieth century, which Quimby Pipe Organs has played a leading part in reviving and developing over the last decade. For the first time in a new instrument by Quimby Pipe Organs, the Dauphin Way United Methodist Church pipe organ has revived the use of the Flared Gamba stop similar to those used by the legendary pipe organ builder Ernest M. Skinner. There is a matching Flared Gamba Celeste stop, and indeed the instrument contains a total of five Celeste stops, a feature generally confined to instruments more than double the size. Another significant feature is the chorus reeds of the Trumpet family and orchestral reeds which include the Tuba, French Horn, English Horn, Oboe, and Clarinet voiced by Quimby Pipe Organs Inc. Of special interest are the two contrasting large solo reeds of the Trumpet family, the Tuba and Harmonic Trumpet ranks, voiced on 20" and 10" wind pressure and were constructed and voiced in our workshop. Unlike many pipe organs of "Symphonic" design each division of the instrument features a complete Diapason chorus that is designed to be equally versatile with classical, romantic, and symphonic styles of music. A significant feature of the Diapason chorus ranks is the unusually thick metal required to ensure stability of pipe speech, and to achieve the optimum harmonic development. The instrument incorporates 27 ranks from the previous 1956 Reuter pipe organ which have been revoiced and rescaled to function with the new tonal specification. The fine acoustics of the church significantly enhance the voicing in ways that cannot be achieved in a worship space with no acoustical ambience.
 
The mechanism features Quimby Pipe Organs' version of the Blackinton slider windchest with pneumatic pallets, allowing the flue pipes of each division to speak to their optimum on common wind channels. There are electro-pneumatic pouch style windchests for all reeds except for the Choir 8' Clarinet and extended ranks. The four-manual and pedal solid walnut drawknob console, built by Quimby Pipe Organ associates, is in the Aeolian-Skinner style and features the latest in solid-state control systems.
