St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, Quincy, Illinois

St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Quincy was home to a 1912 tubular-pneumatic action Wicks organ, which served the church faithfully until 2016.  An initial attempt to rebuild the organ was unsuccessful.  Buzard Pipe Organ Builders is completely rebuilding the instrument with all-new mechanical systems, including electric pull-down slider windchests for the straight manual stops.  All original pipes of the 15-rank two manual and pedal instrument will be retained, and two stops will be added to the specification, using period pipework – a 2′ Fifteenth on the Great, and an 8′ Cornopean on the Swell.
