Description

    • Imported from USA.
    In 1927, the Skinner Organ Company installed Opus 603, which was later moved by that company in 1933 to its current location. The organ is the largest the Skinner Organ Company built with a fully automatic roll player. After sitting silent for many years, the organ was fully restored by the A. Thompson-Allen Company of New Haven, Connecticut. This CD uses the automatic rolls exclusively, which not only play the notes but also change the stops and open and close the expression boxes. These are played purely with technology from the 1920s. Sit back and be amazed. The CD comes with a 32-page booklet that contains an essay on the organ, an interview with Joe Dzeda and Nick Thompson-Allen about their lives as organ builders, a full stop list and tons of great photographs of the insides of this organ.
