The Organ at St. Luke’s (Lawrence Phelps, Opus 1)
The Lawrence Phelps organ was built in 1974 using French organ-building principles of the eighteenth century. As such, the stop disposition includes many mutations characteristic of the classic French organ.
The Phelps organ is encased with each division in its own case. The Grand Orgue is positioned at the top center of the case with the Positiv directly below (and closest to the organist and choir). The Pedale is divided on either side of the manual divisions. The facade pipework of the Grand Orgue and Positiv is 85% tin while the facade pipes of the Pedale are flamed copper. The key action is mechanical which gives the organist complete control over the speech of each pipe.
Mechanical action, 56 note keyboards, 32 note pedal board, electric combination (8 general combinations, 6 divisional combinations available) and stop action. Equal temperament.
