Shades Valley Lutheran Church, Homewood
Reuter Opus 2061 (1984)
Additions by Jay Mitchell (2001)

Shades Valley Lutheran Church

The organ was built and installed in 1984 by the Reuter Organ Company as an instrument of twelve ranks of pipes. The case was designed by Doug Dubois, a member of the church who was working for the Reuter company. He took special care not to obscure the Incarnation Window above the choir.

Slider chests were made of sufficient size to allow more stops to be added at a later time. In 2001 Jay Mitchell and Associates of Kennesaw, Georgia added six ranks (*), completing the original stoplist submitted by consultant James Cook.
