Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church


Dedicated: November 13, 1966 Caldwell, Idaho

The Boone Memorial Presbyterian Pipe Organ was built by Casavant Freres Limited of St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada, and installed by the Northwest representatives, Mr. and Mrs. George A. Graham of Spokane, Washington.

The new Casavant Pipe Organ is a custom built, versatile instrument, capable of playing music of all periods. The GREAT organ (lower keyboard), visible around the rose window in the front of the sanctuary, is classic in design-bright and very articulate; a perfect vehicle for performing the great renaissance and baroque composers.

The SWELL organ (upper keyboard), more sombre and expressive, is contained in the chamber to the left. The organ is used predominantly for romantic music of the 19th century, for accompanying and for softer passage work. Both keyboards, combine for grand climaxes and interesting tone color arrangements.

The PEDAL organ is divided. Most of the pipes are in the chamber to the right, but the choral bass and pedal mixture pipes are located on either side of the Great organ.
