Wanted: Organists visiting Maui. Lahaina’s Holy Innocents Episcopal Church invites visiting organists to play its Beckerath Positiv organ at Sunday services. Built in 1972 by Rudolf von Beckerath and then-apprentice Hans-Ulrich Erbslöh for Honolulu’s Lutheran Church, the 408-pipe Shrankpositiv has a 54-note “split” manual, 30-note pedal, 11 stops, 8 ranks, and 6 registers.
Holy Innocents acquired the instrument in 1977 and moved it to Maui where it has been played by parish musicians such as Carol Monaghan and visiting artists including Angus Sinclair of Canada and Dalibor Miklavcic of Slovenia. The instrument is extremely responsive and fills the worship space beautifully.
The parish community is “exemplary in its hospitality to all visitors,” and that especially includes visiting organists.
