The Möller Organ

The organ at The Church of St. Paul the Apostle is M.P. Möller Pipe Organ Company’s Opus 9987, built in 1965. Comprised of 4,965 pipes, the instrument has 4 manuals (keyboards), 83 ranks, and 78 stops. 12 of the stops are made up of pipework from the church’s previous instrument, E.M. Skinner Opus 544, built in 1925. The organ speaks from two different parts of the room, giving the effect of two instruments in one. At the front of the sanctuary, with large pedal towers that surround the high altar, sits the main organ. Perched high on the south wall of the sanctuary is the nave organ. Both organs are playable from one French-style console, built by the Peragallo Pipe Organ Company in 2000, which rests on a moveable platform. Organists from around the world have come to experience the sound of this incredible instrument in the sanctuary’s famously reverberant acoustic. Renowned organist Virgil Fox recorded The Christmas Album on the Möller Organ in 1965.
