What will we leave to our kids and grandkids?

We build buildings of Styrofoam, and paint them to look like stone, and
compliment the fake by calling it “realistic.”

Will those that follow us know the smell and crackle of a new book as it is
opened for the first time? Will they recognize the randon colors and textues of real wood,
or the sweet, creamy taste of real butter? Will they be able to experience in person the
grandeur of a symphony orchestra or the pealing thunder of an authentic pipe organ?

This recording is a plea for funding to save a glorious and authentic instrument
so it can be shared. It was made possible through the donated talents of an international
concert organist, two professional organ builders, and several enthusiastic volunteers who
believe this organ should be restored, maintained and shared, and have united their hard
work, knowledge, and talent to make it so.

If these efforts are successful, this recording will be a proud part of a great
instrument’s long history. If not, it will serve as an archival memory of what might have
been. It will be a vision seen through a glass darkly, lost to all but memory.

The project is a big one, and will require both major funding sources and
individual donations. You can help by sending your tax-deductible contributions.
