Auburn, Washington St. Matthew Episcopal Church A. ANDREWS & SON, 1853 C.E. Morey, opus 206, 1903 - Rebuild Randall J. McCarty, ca. 1975 - Installation with new upper casework MANUAL COUPLERS (Drawknob) 8 Open Diapason 54 Pedal Coupler (Man. To Ped.) 8 Keraulophone [sic] (tf) 37 8 Dulciana (tf) 37 8 Stop'd Diapason Treble (tf) 37 MISC. CONTROLS 8 Stop'd Diapason Bass 17 Bellows Signal 4 Principal 54 3 Twelfth 54 2 Fifteenth 54 ACTION: Mechanical key & stop VOICES: 8 STOPS: 8 PEDAL 16 Sub Bass 27 RANKS: 8 PIPES: 371 NOTES The Andrews was originally built for Calvary Episcopal Church in Utica, NY. It was rebuilt by C.E. Morey of Utica in 1903 for the Masonic Hall in Newark, NJ. The rebuild included a new case front above the impost of half-round dummies in an arch; a new keyboard in the original frame and brought forward (which resulted in the removal of the original sliding doors); a new coupler action; a new pedal clavier; and expansion of the pedal compass from 12 notes/pipes to 27 notes/pipes. In 1975, the Masonic Hall was slated for demolition. The organ was removed by Alan Laufman, Jack Morse, and Martin Walsh, and stored in Mr. Morse's barn in Webster, NY. Subsequently offered for resale, the organ was obtained by St. Matthew Church, and was set-up by Randall J. McCarty assisted by Leon Stevenson and other parishioners. Mr. McCarty designed and Mr. Stevenson built new casework in the old style for the Auburn installation. The original instrument was enclosed in a swellbox with shutters operated by a hitch-down pedal. The present box dates from 1903, and has a balanced swell system, although the shutters are currently not in place. The 1903 tremolo was also not re-installed. The 8' Open Diapason has 11 open wood basses, some of which are offset at the sides. The 8' Stop'd Diapason Treble is a metal chimney flute from c 25 with 7 stopped wood basses and 4 open metal trebles. The 8' Keraulophone has narrow slots with a small hole at the top. Some evidence suggested that a small scale reed stop may have originally occupied the space where the Keraulophone now resides.
