Great American Organ composite [Back to Library]

Producer: Augustine's Virtual Organs
Manuals: 4
Pedalboard: Yes
Audio Ouput:
Date Built:


One of our most successful projects was with our friend Geoff Johnson, in which we managed to save the sound of the magnificent Aeolian-Skinner (Op. 1132) organ from the doomed Redemeer Church in New Haven. This free Hauptwerk sound sample has been used by many people ever since. Thank God, the organ was also saved, it was placed in the Hershey Presbyterian Church.

The other day a friend of mine from the Philippines approached me with the idea of making a composite, supplementing the Aeolian-Skinner organ sample with a demo version of the Sonus Paradisi Skinner Op. 497 sample. My friend obtained the permission to make the composite from Jiri Zurek and prepared the layout plan for the composite. I made this composite with great pleasure and am releasing this sound sample for free to all Hauptwerk users. This can be a help and a good game for you, but remember, there is nothing more beautiful than the original organs. Try to play the pipe organ as often as possible, and if this is not possible, then buy an authentic Skinner model from Sonus Paradisi.

In addition to my friend from the Philippines, the following friends helped me: Dominique Dantand, Gérard Lefranc, István Nagy and Jean-Pierre Silvestre.
If something's done well, it's thanks to them. Thank you for their work.
