The Allen Organ Company of Macungie, PA, the world's largest builder of church organs, announces the installation of a new Four-Manual, 87 Stop Allen organ at Asbury United Methodist Church. The new Allen is now the largest all-digital organ of its kind in the Lehigh Valley. The instrument replaces a four-manual Allen installed originally in 1975.
The custom console is finished in oak, accented with walnut drawknob jambs. The drawknob stems are artfully crafted from exotic rosewood, as are the keyboard and pedalboard sharps.
The organ includes Allen's exclusive technology featuring Quad Suite™ with four complete organ specifications; American Classic, Neo Baroque, French Romantic and English Cathedral. Each specification can be accessed by the organist within a matter of seconds to properly present any organ literature. This provides the organist with 321 individual voices on this instrument.
The installation consists of an expanded audio system with 34 audio channels and over 60 speaker cabinets.
