Organ Specs

The organ is Casavant Frères Opus 2805 (1965). This two-manual, 25-stop organ is a fully mechanical action instrument with an elegant Ruckpositiv. However, it has no electronic control systems nor expression. Nevertheless, English organist Peter Hurford once mentioned that this was one of the finest Baroque instruments in the world. As such, he recorded extensively on this instrument with DECCA. The results were astounding and his Bach and pre-Bach recorded interpretations were considered as the authority on the performance of Bach’s organ music.
