Database Manager on November 10, 2016:

This organ was built in 2008 for Daniel Hyde when he was a resident of England. It has a case of white oak. Following Mr. Hyde's appointment in 2016 as Music Director and Organist of St. Thomas Church, the organ was moved to New York City and installed in the tower room where the carillon clavier is located. Larry Trupiano, organ curator of the church, did the installation. The tower room is sufficiently isolated so that the organ does not create any disturbance in the Church when in use.
