Bruton Parish Continues 300th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign, Commissions New Organ

From Virginia-

Bruton Parish Church recently announced the commission of a new pipe organ, which will be just the fifth one in the church building’s 300-year history.

The purchase of a new organ is part of a major fundraising campaign launched in recognition of the church building’s 300-year anniversary in September. The church itself was established in 1674.

The organ has been commissioned from Dobson Pipe Organ Builders, Ltd., a Lake City, Iowa-based company founded in 1974.

The new organ will be centered over the altar in east gallery of the church and will feature a painted poplar case with gilded fa├žade pipes and a three-manual console in the chancel, according to a recent news release from the church.
