Wangerin, Madison Masonic Center [Back to Library]

Producer: Evensong
Country: United States
Style: Romantic Organs
Manuals: 3
Pedalboard: No
Audio Ouput:
Date Built: 1926


Wangerin built organs similar in style and sound to E.M SKinner, Kimball and other builders of that era. They are colorful and warm, well-suited for orchestral and romantic music. In 1925, the Wangerin company built 3 organs for the Madison Masonic Temple (now referred to as the Madison Masonic Center) The main organ in the Auditorium is a 3-manual and Pedal with 5 divisions and about 40 ranks, the 2 Lodge organs are identical in stoplist with 2 manuals and pedal, 13 ranks. All 3 organs are in mostly original condition, but in varying states of disrepair. The Auditorium organ is about 70-80 percent functional, Lodge 2 organ is about 50 percent and Lodge 1 (while intact) is not playable at this time. Because of that, we have used stops from the Auditorium organ to recreate the Lodge organ. We have also provided an extended version of the Auditorium organ, which adds a number of stops to give a bit more flexibility. All of these additions were done carefully, in the spirit of what was done on larger Wangerin organs of that time. Do note that a portion of each sample set sale will go toward the organ restoration fund.
