Our Church Instruments

The Harpsichord
The harpsichord is a two-manual German-style instrument by Dutch builder Jan Kalsbeek.  It is crafted in the style of Michael Mietke, who built a similar instrument for Bach.
The Noack Bach Organ
Built by the Noack Organ Company (opus 128, 1995), the Organ was designed in the spirit of instruments Bach knew in order to be suited to the performance of his music.
The Continuo Organ
The continuo organ (opus 56, 2007) was built by Taylor & Boody Organbuilders, a small firm that specializes in building tracker action organs in the classical North German and Dutch styles.
