Product Description

Kevin Clark plays the organ at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas. It was designed and built by C. B. Fisk, Inc., of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Opus 99 of the Fisk firm – a three-manual instrument – has 46 stops totaling 2,976 pipes, housed in a polychromed case. The late Charles Fisk, in consultation with Rice University's Professor of Organ Clyde Holloway, designed the preliminary specification in 1981. The stoplist reflects the many roles a modern American church organ must play: leading hymn singing, accompanying choral music and playing 400 years of organ repertoire with authority. The contract for the organ was signed in 1984 shortly after Charles's death, affirming the church's faith in his successors.
