Mildred Andrews Boggess Memorial Fisk Organ, 3 manuals, 38 stops, 45 ranks, Opus 111, 1999. I was fortunate to record on this glorious instrument in 2005 after a reunion of Miss Andrews' organ students. The composer, Jan Janca, is a friend living in Tübingen Germany who also studied with Dupré. His brilliant Toccata on "Now All Thank and Bring Praise" (Nun danket all und bringet Ehr) shows the organ at its finest.
