The concert scene of the Eastern Shore has been greatly enhanced by the installation of a 65 rank pipe organ that rivals the organs of Mobile and Pensacola. With a 32’ stop as a foundation, the instrument is very complete with principals, flutes, and strings and is crowned with numerous mixtures and reeds, making it versatile for the performance of a large variety of organ concert literature. The 1968 Schlicker-Heissler organ was originally installed and modified in 1997 by Mann and Trupiano Organ Builders of New York City, who also moved the St. James chapel organ. Since then, Darwin Klug of Heissler in America has maintained the instrument, installed a large 16’ Open Wood stop and additional soft stops. Performers on this organ have included such greats as David Higgs, Hector Olivera Mary Preston, Virgil Fox, Dame Gillian Weir, Sir David Willcocks and Madame Marie Duruflé.
