The Organ

music_organThe original, two manual organ of 16 stops was built by James Cole of Boston and installed in 1901 when the present church edifice was erected. In 1929, Welte-Mignon, which evolved out of the W.W. Kimball Company, was commissioned to install a third manual – Choir division and from that time, the organ specification has remained essentially the same.
Following that, a number of different companies were involved in the organ’s upkeep, including on-going maintenance, overhauls and general reconditioning projects, such as a new console installed in the late 1960′s, which was dedicated in concert by the one & only, E. Power Biggs, himself.
