“The Harmonious Echo: The Life and Times of the Barley Memorial Organ”

The biography of Marion, Indiana’s municipal pipe organ. This 340 page book looks at the role the organ has had in the community’s history, and the people and events that imprinted themselves on this wonderful Romantic pipe organ. Marion is the smallest community in the United States to have a municipal pipe organ. The organ has been loved and neglected. It has died and then lived again. It has witnessed murder and mayhem, and also hope and reconciliation. If you love the organ or are interested in history, “The Harmonious Echo” is a must-read for you.

Temperature and the Pipe Organ

A humorous little brochure that makes an important point. It’s okay to turn the heat down during the week, as long as you turn it back up in time for the organ to get back to it’s “happy place.” Funny and to the point! Share it with the Trustees!
