Key & Stop VOICES: 14 STOPS: 14 RANKS: 15 PIPES: 860 NOTES This organ was originally built for First Baptist Church in Port Jervis, NY. It was relocated thru the Organ Clearing House to Calvary Episcopal Church in Burnt Hills New York after a 1966 fire destroyed all but 2 ranks of their 2nd, used pipe organ – a 1-manual, Wm. A. Johnson, Opus 415. The Tallman was installed with a new case and tonal changes by Sidney Chase of Worcester, NY. Further repairs were later undertaken by Bozeman-Gibson of Deerfield, NH. and Michael Lorris of Barre, VT. In 1985, the Carey Organ Co. of Troy, NY. Tonally revised and enlarged the organ to 15 ranks. The Great 8' Melodia and Swell 8' Stopped Diapason were swapped. The Great 8' Dulciana was reportedly new (or at least to this instrument). The Great II Mixture is new. The Swell 1-1/3' Larigot is revoiced. The Swell 1-3/5' Tierce is made from the retained 2-2/3' Twelfth of the church's previous Wm. A. Johnson organ. And the Swell 8' Oboe is also retained from the Johnson.
