Christ Episcopal Church, Kalispell, Montana Untitled Untitled

The organ at Christ Episcopal Church, Kalispell, Montana, was originally built in 1893 at a cost of $1,300 for the Particular Baptist Church in Griggsville, Illinois by Joseph Gratian & Company of Alton, Illinois (across the Mississippi River from St. Louis). It was relocated to San Filipe Roman Catholic Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, by Layton Organs in 1977. It was relocated again to Christ Episcopal Church, Kalispell, Montana in 1982 by Raymond Garner & Associates, where it replaced a Moller organ (Op. 7816 of 1948). The original Gr. 8' Dulciana of the Gratian organ was replaced by a 3 rank Mixture in 1990. The Vox Angelica is a soft string similar to an Aeoline and is not tuned as a celeste. The organ has mechanical action and is situated on the west gallery of the church.
