The Organ List

The New Organ List

Wicks Opus List

New! On the Minnesota Organ List are two new files at the top of the list: Organists of the Twin Cities and Organ Technicians of the Twin Cities. Thanks to Jayson Engquist for assembling these lists. We have also added the Wicks opus list in indexed spreadsheet format. The file will download to your computer. Using the arrows in the column headers you can search the list. Note that it is complete only into the 1980's.

Please continue to send new and old organs -- corrections.  We try and publish a brief description of each organ with its builder and date, stoplist, along with pictures of the building, the console and a view of the pipes if possible.  

Some notes about the New Organ List:

  1. Where possible we list the builder with opus number. Some organs move around and find new locations.
  2. When churches merge or change names, we try and include a cross reference link -- either in the city index or directly in the organ's page.
  3. We've found many cases of fires, tornados, congregations that moved to new buildings, etc. Sometimes the organs were moved. (We even found one instance where, due to documentation errors, the same organ was in four locations simultaneously!)
  4. Many churches have replaced an older organ. In these cases we list each instrument by the original builder. If some ranks are reused, we will note it. Rebuilds and renovations are cited if we know about it, but maintenance activities such as releathering or a new console or new relay does not constitute a new organ, and it remains attributed to the original builder.


For any further information on any of these instruments, or to submit corrections, additions or pictures, please contact DavidPEngen@aol.com
