ORGAN 12/6 -- Henry Erben

----------

Midmer-Losh Company

Merrick, N.Y. (1928)
Electro-pneumatic action?
2 manuals
Church records show that on June 10, 1928, a new organ was ready to be delivered. Another record indicate that the Midmer-Losh Pipe Organ Company performed a major upgrade to the organ in 1929. It seems quite possible that Midmer-Losh rebuilt and electrified the previous organ. Specifications for this organ have not yet been located.

Jesse Woodberry & Co.

Boston, Mass. (c.1895)
Mechanical action
2 manuals, 16 registers
The first organ in the present church building was built by Jesse Woodberry & Co. of Boston. It is possible that Woodberry, who at one time worked for E. & G.G. Hook & Hastings, may have enlarged the Hook & Hastings organ and moved it to the present building. Specifications for this organ have not yet been located.

E. & G.G. Hook & Hastings

Boston, Mass. – Opus 762 (1874)
Mechanical action
1 manual, 10 registers
The third organ in the second church building was originally installed in the Congregational Church, Norwich, Conn. This one-manual organ was obtained by the Staten Island church that same year. Specifications for this organ have not yet been located.

Unknown Builder

Cabinet Organ (1868)
Mechanical action
The first organ in the second church building was a cabinet organ, a gift "from a number of ladies and gentlemen in Boston." Specifications for this organ have not yet been located.

Henry Erben

New York City (1853)

The organ in the first church was built in 1853 by Henry Erben of New York. Specifications for this organ have not yet been located. ----------
