Schoenstein organ

In 1775, the area of Harrods Creek was settled a few miles east of Louisville, Kentucky. The first Episcopal church, St. Francis in the Fields, was not founded until 170 years later. With the help of a borrowed reed organ and in borrowed space, the first service was held on Christmas Eve of 1945. 

The congregation's first building (the present Narthex) was finished in 1948 and contained a pipe organ built by the Moeller Organ Company of Hagerstown, Maryland. Rapid growth led to the building of a parish hall (now Graves Hall) in 1958. The parish hall was intended to accommodate large family services, and its design included a small pipe organ built by the Schlicker Organ Company of Buffalo, New York. 

In the early seventies, the Moeller organ in the church was donated to St. James' Episcopal Church in Shelbyville, Kentucky, and replaced with a larger mechanical action instrument built by the Holtkamp Organ Company of Cleveland, Ohio. The organ was a gift of Mrs. George Garvin Brown in memory of her husband.   

 With the renovation of Graves Hall and the building of the new church in 1995, the Schlicker organ was sold to St. Andrew's-on-the-Sound Episcopal Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Holtkamp organ from the old church was installed in the gallery of the new church.   

 A Schoenstein Organ of 51 ranks (approximately 2700 individual pipes) was installed in 1999. Built in San Francisco, the organ was the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Rounsavall II, and their children, Robert W. Rounsavall III, G. Hunt Rounsavall, and Gretchen Rounsavall Clark. The Schoenstein console also controls the Holtkamp Organ in the gallery by means of pull-downs which were added to the Holtkamp trackers. 

In 2005, following the completion of a small chapel at St. Francis in the Fields, the Hilliard Lyons Foundation gave a continuo organ built by Klop Orgelbauw, Netherlands, in memory of Henning Hilliard. The stops are split bass/treble, and the organ sits on a permanent dolly, allowing it to be used not only in the chapel, but in the larger church as well.
