The Swell (upper) and Great (lower) manuals of a modern electronic organ (Digital Content), which was built in Holland, in the Stake Centre of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Queen Alexandra Road, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, UK. All four ranks of pipes (diapasons, flutes, strings and reeds) are represented and the organ has three couplers, a trompette en chamade and a full pedal board. The number of pipes that would be necessary to replicate this awesome sound, not to mention the cost, send the senses reeling! The quality of sound produced by the Digital Content is superior to the Johannes, Compton and other electronic organs which I have played in the past, but there was a correspondingly higher price tag attached to it! The Dutch build great organs, but they are not cheap! I was privileged to play this magnificent instrument at the baptisms of six of my grandchildren. Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera. For your (seasonal) enjoyment here is the carol “Go Tell It On The Mountain” masterfully played by organist, Richard Elliot on the Tabernacle Organ in Salt Lake City, Utah.
