Saint Barnabas Presbyterian — Richardson, TX

3-Manual Custom Allen

Installed in December 2008, the Allen-Sipe Digital Pipe Combination Organ is a focal point of the sanctuary at St. Barnabas and of the musical life of the church.

The 458 pipes that comprise the eight ranks included in this instrument are all exposed. They tower over windchest enclosures that were specifically designed to match the existing surfaces in the chancel. In addition to the pipe stops, which are not digitally duplicated, there are abundant resources to match the capabilities of many large all-pipe instruments. The digital ranks were chosen for St. Barnabas alone. Also, with voicing of both the pipe and digital stops by Burton Tidwell, as well as the addition of many of his personally digitized stops from organs around the world, the continuity in the instrument and the “tuning” to the space of the sanctuary contributes mightily to the worship and music life of the church.
