Létourneau Pipe Organ

The Létourneau Pipe Organ

Redeemer's Musical Heart

In December 2002, Redeemer dedicated a new pipe organ built by Orgues Létourneau, a firm based in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada. The instrument, the firm’s Opus 80, has three manuals, 59 stops, and 73 ranks, with a total of 4119 pipes.

Redeemer’s pipe organ has some distinct characteristics. Because the music of our Lutheran heritage important to Redeemer, two of the manual divisions are essentially a “Bach organ,” with German nomenclature for the stops and 16’ principal choruses that provide clarity in contrapuntal writing of Bach and other great Baroque composers.

The third manual is French in name and sound, providing the color and warmth that is necessary to successfully play the music Franck, Widor, and others. The Hauptwerk, or antiphonal division, provides additional support for congregational singing, as it is ideally located on the center axis of the room. All divisions of the organ are designed to function independently as well as blend together.
