The “Water Organ”, designed by organist Anthony Newman and built in Hamburg, Germany by the Beckerath Organ Company, was named by the donor, Bonnie Trotta, to reflect the dramatic force, graceful peace and emotional healing of spiritual music. The organ incorporates the traditions of German Baroque and French Romantic organ building. The 41 stops, 53 ranks and 2640 pipes are distributed among the Grand Orgue, Récit, Positif and Pedal divisions.
One special feature of the organ is the Cymbelstern, a stop producing the sound of tinkling bells while two decorative stars spin on the case of the organ. The Cymbelstern was donated by Jane Brooks Farrell in memory of her husband, Robert H. Brooks.
