The Organ

Our fine-sounding organ began as a Warren, was rebuilt by Casavant, and was most recently expanded and improved by Andrew Meade and Tom Fitches. The most recent work enlarged the opening from the organ chamber towards the nave, which greatly improved the egress of sound towards the congregation. A period organ case from a closed Toronto church was refinished and installed, where it looks like it was always there! New façade pipes were installed in front of the archways into the chancel and sound-dampening fabric hangings were removed.

With the completion of some work still needing to be done (a larger blower to improve the wind supply, repairing or replacing a cracked windchest, and final installation and voicing of some stored pipes) St. Peter’s will boast one of the finest instruments between Toronto and Montreal.
