Cotton fields surround this church, overlooking a bayou, in the Mississippi Delta. The new organ is located in a former choir chamber to the right side of the altar. This chamber is opposite a beautiful gothic-styled stained glass window. To balance the visual effect, Martin Ott designed an organ case with three gothic arches. The wood of the case is of sweet gum tree, grown in Mississippi and shipped to St. Louis.
