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.
