Pipe Organ

 

  

Frank Roosevelt
New York City – Opus 421 (1889)
Tracker-pneumatic action
3 manuals, 31 stops, 36 ranks



The following specification was recorded by F.R. Webber (1887-1963), whose "Organ Scrapbooks" are in the possession of The Organ Historical Society Archives in Princeton, N.J. Click here to view the notebook page. Webber writes the following comments:

     The organ was built by Mr. Hilborne L. Roosevelt, but its original date and number are not listed in the Roosevelt literature. It was either rebuilt or else enlarged in 1889 by Frank Roosevelt. The rectangular, ivory nameplates of both Hilborne L. and Frank Roosevelt are on the console.
     Metal pipes in flats are displayed on the front of the case, with a flat of wood pipes at either end. The console is of the usual handsome appearance of the later Roosevelt work, and the ivory discs are engraved in the characteristic Roosevelt special lettering.
