Notes

  • Identified through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Reused Möller pipework and windchests, converted to electro-mechanical action; replaced in 1996 by Guilbaut-Thérien 2/26 Op. 42. (Database Manager. March 16, 2009)
  • Updated through online information from Connor Annable. (Database Manager. December 24, 2010)
  • From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: Sometime in the 1960s, Weiss & Turney of Seaford, L.I., installed a new organ in the Brick Church Chapel. Weiss & Turney reused pipes from the previous 1953 M.P. Möller organ, and rebuilt existing windchests with electro-mechanical action. The organ was a memorial to Dr. Clarence Dickinson (1873-1969), who was Organist & Choirmaster at Brick Church from 1909-1960. (Jeff Scofield. December 26, 2019)
