Casavant Freres Organ Opus 3865:
Isn't she a beauty!!! The service was billed as "Solemn Evensong with The Liturgy of Consecration" for the organ. It was a delightful sevice with the most incredible organ and choral music I have ever experienced. Dr. David Burton-Brown, our organist and choir director, certainly did us proud! Each organ selection was fabulous, but I was totally undone and brought to tears by Stanley's "Trumpet Voluntary in D Major". Well done David!! The Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander, Bishop of the Diocese of Atlanta, preached, while our beloved Rector, Doug Dailey officiated. It was a lovely service and I was so pleased to be in attendance.
