Historic Organ Recitals in the William & Mary Wren Chapel in May 2022
The organ in the Wren Chapel that is used during this concert series, is a mid-18th century English chamber organ. The instrument is owned by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and has been on loan to William & Mary since 1970.
“By design, English chamber organs are not as large as similar instruments built elsewhere in Europe. The organ in the Wren Chapel has a single keyboard, a single mechanical pedal, and five-and-a-half ranks of pipes, each having its own characteristic and sound quality. Nine stops allow the organist to choose which ranks of pipes to play. Despite its comparatively small size, the sound produced by the organ is robust and melodic.”
