Sesquicentenary of St Luke the Evangelist ChurchPrint Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by John Huth

The organ commemorates the sesquicentenary of St Luke the Evangelist Church.

St Luke's was built between 1834-35 to the design of architect John Lee Archer in a delightful Georgian Gothic style, and incorporates a crenellated west end tower and clock.

The organ was installed in St John's Anglican Church, Devonport in 1909, the gift of a parishioner, later indicated as Mr A. Munnew, where it was first used on Easter Day.  It was rebuilt in 1966 by K.R. Davis & Son, at which time a new case, radiating-concave pedal board and swell box were provided. The organ was installed at Richmond in 1984 by Australian Pipe Organs Pty Ltd when the Devonport church acquired a larger organ built by Fred Taylor for a church in Melbourne.
