Pipe organs at First-Plymouth Church, UCC
The Schlicker Nave Organ - Chancel and Antiphonal
NAVE ORGAN FINAL STOP LIST
During the course of the Schlicker's 30 year life, the musical program of First-Plymouth Church and Abendmusik: Lincoln expanded considerably, resulting in several changes to the organ. Due to various mechanical problems, (and not being able to play it quiet enough!) a still expanding music ministry, and the various outreach programs of the church and Abendmusik: Lincoln, a generous challenge/matching grant from the Lied Foundation was secured to replace this instrument. Many of our members and friends are purchasing pipes or complete ranks for the chancel organ, with some additional funding still needed. The balcony organ which replaced the Schlicker Antiphonal division was a generous gift from Ruth Amen. The Lied Chancel organ is currently under construction and should be dedicated in October, 1998.
The Antiphonal division of the organ was sold to St. John's Episcopal Church in Northampton, Mass., and the Chancel organ was sold to Saint James Episcopal Church in Fairhope, Alabama, where it has been installed and rebuilt by Mann and Trupiano organ builders of Brooklyn, NY who also built a new console. Most of the chests and pipework are by Heissler Orgeln of Germany with the Goettler Trumpet by M.P. Moller, Inc. Tonal finishing of the reeds by Gilbert Adams of Monroe, NC.

In what may be considered a somewhat unusual occurance, the Pensacola Chapter, AGO has a web page on the refurbished Schlicker Chancel organ at the following address: http://www.pensacola-ago.org/organs/stjamfh.html. Please stop by their page on this organ as well as others in their area!
