Transformation of a pipe organ | Before and After Video | Stephen Tharp Organist

Transformation with before and after photos are amazing to see. This is the first before and after comparison of a pipe organ I know of. In this video organist Stephen Tharp is seen and heard playing Vierne's Carillon de Westminster on the Kilgen pipe organ at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Brooklyn.

The first 4 minutes and 22 seconds were recorded in March of 2007. The pipe organ had been made playable for this important video, as it would be the last time the pipe organ would be heard for many years. Days after this video was made the pipe organ was removed from Our Lady of Refuge Church and was sent to Alliance, Ohio. After six years of fund raising the entire pipe organ was restored and re-installed. At 4 minutes and 23 seconds the video jumps to a recording made in May of 2015 on the entirely restored pipe organ. 


JAV Recordings led the effort to raise the money to restore this pipe organ. Many of the customers of JAV Recordings pitched in to help raise the funds restore the pipe organ.
