First Presbyterian Church

Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

This new organ enjoys ideal placement in an exceptionally fine acoustic in the newly rebuilt sanctuary space of First Presbyterian Church. Consultant Gordon Turk, Committee Chair Mary Nichol and the Organ Committee worked with Charles Kegg to design a versatile instrument, much of which is enclosed in two expression boxes.

The handsome white oak case is designed to complement the modified Federal style interior of this historic building. Six stops were retained from the previous instrument and there are two stops prepared for future addition.

During construction of this organ the Organ Committee elected to enlarge the new console to three manuals. Based on our designs they have seen for some of our other clients, the Committee decided that it would be good to have a third manual which borrow stops from the two divisions to aid the playing of service and choral works. Designed by Gordon Turk and Charles Kegg, this Choir manual greatly enhances the flexibility of the instrument without compromising the integrity of a complete and well-designed two manual instrument.
