This purpose of this website is to tell the story of the development, building and installation of the digital organ at the Church of St John the Evangelist, Ottawa, Canada. It begins with some background (after all, St John's already had a beautiful pipe organ, why did we need another?), and relates the story of building the organ.
I'm not an organ builder. I'm an organist who needed more than his church's small tracker organ could offer. The process of building the digital organ was interesting, but it was always a journey toward an ultimate destination: an instrument on which the great masterworks of the organ repertoire could be performed.
