Muller Pipe Organ Company has built a new organ for St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church of Toledo, Ohio: two manuals and pedal, 16 ranks, 978 pipes.

The project was undertaken in two phases. To coincide with renovations to the sanctuary, which included improvements to the acoustic, the initial phase was completed in 2018 and consisted of the installation of casework. The mirror-image cases were constructed of cherry by Muller’s woodworking team using traditional mortise and tenon joinery. The gold-lacquered façade pipes feature polished Romanesque mouths.

The Great is housed in the right case and possesses five ranks. The Swell is home to nine ranks and is located in the left case. The Pedal division, as in most small instruments, is but two independent stops. The Subbass resides with the Great division. The Principal is located in the left case, where it forms part of the façade. The rest of the Pedal stops are borrowed to promote registrational flexibility.

The dedicatory concert was given by Todd Wilson to an enthusiastic audience on September 26, 2021.

The organ is featured on the cover of the February 2022 issue of The Diapason: https://www.thediapason.com/content/cover-feature-muller-pipe-organ-co-st-joan-arc-toledo
