One of the distinguishing features of the Hyde Park Chapel is the wonderful pipe organ. Many that come to the Visitors' Centre are impressed with the organ and it's beautiful sound. Linda was asked to play in Sacrament Meeting the last two Sundays. The regular organists were on holiday. The congregations sings loud in joyful praises!

In 1961, in the dedicatory prayer of the Hyde Park Chapel, President David O. McKay said:

“We dedicate the organ, built especially to render up music to thy name and holiness, built by able and capable men who devoted long hours to the establishment of this wonderful instrument. May it be held sacred in thy sight. Bless those who would play the organ that they will render such music that it will touch the heart and bring them to know thee and thy work.”
