Opus 33

St. Paul's Lutheran Church
Glenco, Missouri

Year of Commission 1978
Relocated in November 2002

This instrument was commissioned by Mount Tabor Lutheran Church in Manchester, Missouri, in 1985. Rodney Schrank played the Dedicatory Recital. Rodney Schrank, was the founder of Morning Star Publishing House in St. Louis Missouri.

The church merged with Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Woods Mill Road in Ballwin, Missouri. The organ was moved to Good Shepherd Sanctuary. After a few years, Good Shepherd Sanctuary became too small for the growing congregation.

Opus 33, in the new space, would also have been too small. The instrument was therefore sold to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Glencoe, Missouri. This sanctuary, where it now resides, was a perfect setting for that intimate instrument.

The Reverend Paul Grime recorded on this instrument for Concordia Publishing House.
