Munderloh Windows

Behind the chancel, rising up 98 feet, the east end of the chapel are the beautiful Munderloh Windows, designed by the Peter Dohmen Studios of St. Paul, Minnesota, which capture the fresh morning sun. Often described as “sermons in color,” the stained glass artistry symbolizes the creative work of God the Father, the redemptive work of God the Son, and the sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit. Illustrated in the window of the creation are the hands of God, a sun, Adam and Eve, plants and trees, and the serpent of temptation. The window of redemption highlights the life of Christ with symbols including a manger, a cross, drops of blood and angels. The window of sanctification is illustrated with ancient scrolls of the Bible, the dove of the Holy Spirit, an angel with a trumpet, and symbols of education such as a lamp, an owl and the torch from the University seal. The windows may be “read” in a clockwise path beginning in the upper right of each window.

Meier Music Window and Reddel Organ

Providing an impressive backdrop to the west gallery wall of the Chapel are nearly 5,500 organ pipes flanking the Meier Music Window. This stained glass window depicts the role of music in Christian life and worship and is illustrated with various instruments ranging from a harp to a French horn. The organ console is located in the west gallery where there also is seating for choirs and orchestras. The organ, widely known for the quality of its powerful sounds, was designed and constructed by Herman Schlicker and the Schlicker Organ Co. and renovated in 1996 by Dobson Pipe Organ Builders. The organ has 101 ranks and is a four-manual console with pedal and 77 stops.
