Opus 42

Lord of Life Lutheran Church
Memphis, Tennessee
Year of Commission 1986

Martin Ott’s first contact with Lord of Life Lutheran Church was by mail and the information given was for an instrument based on a 4-foot Prinzipal organ scaling. But after Martin’s visit on location, it became clear that the organ needed to be stepped up proportionally to suit the larger acoustical envelope of the sanctuary. An organ based on an eight-foot Prinzipal was deemed more appropriate for the space. Opus 42 was designed with this in mind.

The instrument is a free-standing organ made of oak with keydesk attached. The instrument is placed in the front of the sanctuary and to the left side of the altar.
