Immanuel's UCC, Holstein, near Marthasville, Missouri

It is very rare these days to find a small church that really cares about its historic pipe organ. The 1905 tracker organ at Immanuel's UCC in Holstein is a particularly nicely voiced two-manual instrument by the Hinners Organ Company of Pekin, Illinois, and has been meticulously maintained throughout its more than a century of life by the congregation. The church is a charming Victorian gothic brick building with an elegant spire, set in beautiful countryside between Washington and Warrenton, about 40 miles west of St. Louis. The stoplist is as follows:

Great: C-c4, 61 notes

8' Open Diapason 61, 1-27 in facade
