ORGAN 3/1 -- Hillgreen, Lane & Co. [HillgreenLane]

----------

Hillgreen, Lane & Co.

Alliance, Ohio – Opus 331 (1913)
Electro-pneumatic action
2 manuals, 12 stops, 11 ranks
The Agreement (Mar. 28, 1913) between Hillgreen, Lane & Company and Joseph R. Duryee (pastor) for Grace Reformed Church, shows that Hillgreen, Lane would built a two-manual organ for a consideration of $2,000 plus the existing organ (valued at $500). Hillgreen, Lane provided a Key-Desk fitted with solid Mahogany for the Stop-Steps, Key-Slips, Name-Board and Key-Cheeks. The Stop Knobs had oblique faces, and the couplers were oscillating ivory tablets. A note in the Agreement states that "Preference is given for a mechanically operated swell." In the Oak case were decorated front pipes from the lower octaves of the Great Open Diapason and the Swell Violin Diapason. The organ was tuned to International Pitch (A = 435). Hillgreen, Lane indicated that the organ would be complete and ready for use on or about the 1st day of September 1913. ----------
