Allen Elite™ Opus VI:
Falls Church Presbyterian Church,
Falls Church, Virginia

Allen Elite Opus VI is a four-manual digital instrument of 82 stops with a 48-channel audio system and separate antiphonal division. The massive audio system integrated into the building's architecture results in an organ of astonishing clarity and dimension of sound. The English Cathedral tonal design is adapted for a contemporary American church setting. Its broad and majestic sound, solid foundation tone and ability to fill the building without being harsh or overwhelming testifies to the organ building expertise of Allen Organ Company.
