Database Manager on December 26, 2019:

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.
