Pipe Organ Stoplist

The Pipe Organ stoplist (sounds that the pipe organ can make) has been finalized. However, not all the pieces on this stoplist will come with the organ this year. Preparations have been made to add an antiphonal organ which will be on the opposite side of the Sanctuary from the main pipes. (An antiphonal organ is a set of pipes away from the main pipes, but controlled by the same keyboard console as the main organ. It is useful for supporting congregational singing.)

There are many codes in the stoplist. For example (pf) means that it is “prepared for,” but will not be part of the organ when it first comes to Shepherd of the Valley. Also, (gt) and (sw) means that this part of the organ is actually on the Great or the Swell and is playable from this particular manual or pedal.

This list, and a list of all pipe organs in the Twin Cities is available from the Twin Cities American Guild of Organists.
