Available for sale, the grandest part of the world's most famous and influential digital organ!
This iconic and world-renowned instrument has been removed from Trinity Church prior to a complete renovation of the church and the subsequent installation of the new 113-stop Glatter-Götz/Rosales pipe organs in 2021.
M&O Opus 1 has been brought back to our shop in Needham, MA, upgraded to include our latest console hardware and software, be refurbished as needed to be as good as new, and then offered for resale as a new Opus with a new organ warranty. The organ's stoplist can be either maintained or adjusted to suit the needs and interests of its new owner, and the audio system will be re-configured for its new home as well.
The chancel console, delivered in 2004, was built by Fratelli Ruffatti of Padua, Italy. It is quite simply one of the most extraordinary 3-manual organ consoles ever built, with a breadth and magnitude to rival ANY 5 manual organ! With its intricately carved grape and vine tracery and its remarkable inlaid panel designs, it is an unparalleled piece of organ woodworking. So many of the features and functionality which M&O is famous for today were first introduced in this console. It is a cabinet-maker's masterpiece, featuring fantastic P&S bone/ebony keyboards, all-Harris stop controls and gorgeous exotic drawknob wood shanks with bone engraved faces.
