The New Hope organ was built and installed in 1987 by renowned American organ-builder John Brombaugh. Consisting of eight ranks, the instrument was artistically conceived in the style of North German Baroque organs, which would have been familiar to such composers as Dietrich Buxtehude and even Johann Sebastian Bach, but it is capable of playing a broader repertoire. Stop- and key-action are entirely mechanical; electricity is needed only for the small blower housed in the church’s basement.
Here are several performances from a recent concert series:
Movement II from Concerto in A Minor BWV593, J.S. Bach, performed by Mark Gorman
Movement I from Gloria RV 589, Antonio Vivaldi, performed by Mark Gorman
