Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit, Missoula, Montana Untitled Untitled

The organ at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit in Missoula is probably the finest organ in the State of Montana and is a good example of what can be accomplished on a relatively limited budget. It incorporates much of the pipework from the previous Austin Organ (Op. 608 of 1915). The instrument was built in 1999 by Bond Organ Builders of Portland, Oregon (Op. 27), in consultation with Dr. Nancy Cooper, Holy Spirit Parish's Director of Music. The organ has mechanical key and stop action. The facade pipes are copper, in keeping with Montana's tradition of copper mining.
