Pipe Organs
in Newfoundland and Labrador 


. . . a personal odyssey by David Peters

   

 

Dr. David Peters at home

Preface

After many ears practising dentistry and playing church organ, the time came to move on to other things on my agenda. Three on the list, near the top, unrelated it seemed, were: 1/ climbing Gros Morne Mountain, Newfoundland’s highest peak, because I had to do that once; 2/ locating all the pipe organs in Newfoundland, because they were an irresistible attraction, and 3/ visiting the Falkland Islands, because since my school days that place and Newfoundland seemed to have too many uncanny similarities to ignore.

Approach

The information contained on this site and the creation of the site itself are labours of love. This study by Dr. David Peters is now public record and will remain relevant in the church music world in Newfoundland and Labrador for many years.

Testimonials

"I was so excited when I first heard about this project from Dr. Peters. Being a pianist/organist for many years, I appreciate so much his keen interest in organ music and his capable work as is clearly demonstrated with this project." -- Wallace Robinson, Grand Falls-Windsor.

From the Webmaster

The "Order of Presentation" is the main link used to present the pipe organs. This corresponds to the order of visitations. The St. John's sites are listed separately so as to avoid menu selection clutter. If you are in the St. John's listings and wish to go to a pipe organ site outside of the city, go to the "Order of Presentation" always available on the left hand side.

In compiling this study, David captured many interesting and unique photos of churches and community landmarks. The beautiful style of St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Fogo, helps capture the spirit and body of this whole presentation.
