All Saints’ dedicates renovated organ

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – All Saints’ Episcopal Church will bless and dedicate its newly renovated organ Sunday.
The 4 p.m. program will include a special recital by Dr. Stephen Schaeffer, organist and director of music at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Advent in Birmingham, Ala. The public is invited, and a reception will follow in the Parish Hall.
The church is located at 608 Jefferson St.
The 59-year-old Moller organ was originally installed at First United Methodist Church in Tupelo and was later purchased and installed at All Saints’ when the congregation moved into its current worship space in 1992. Renovation of the organ – including extensive expansion of its musical capacity and installation of a new digital control system – was made possible by a gift from the late Dr. Allen Cooley.
