The Skinner Organ Company
of Boston, Massachusetts

1920's

The contract for Pine Street Presbyterian Church’s organ was signed in 1924, when design and construction began on the instrument. The Skinner Organ Company of Boston, Massachusetts, installed the organ in 1926 as opus 506. At the time, E.M. Skinner was the premier organ builder in the United States.

The Aeolian Company
New York CIty

1954

In 1954, the Æolian-Skinner company, a merger of the pipe organ division of the Æolian Company and the Skinner Organ Company in 1932, completely cleaned and re-leathered the instrument, but did not make any major tonal changes. This process helped ensure the reliable functioning of the organ for many decades.

The M. P. Möller Organ
Company in Hagerstown

1963

The organ served faithfully and virtually unchanged from its original construction for 37 years. In 1963, the M.P. Möller Company of Hagerstown, Maryland enlarged the instrument. During this rebuild, the best of the Skinner pipework and virtually all of the chestwork were saved, renewed, and reinstalled. Of particular importance was the retention of the fully enclosed Solo Organ, with its magnificent state trumpet, colorful solo strings, and French horn.

1980's

In the 1980s, the organ was in need of repair, restoration, upgrades, and enlargement. Under the direction of tonal director Daniel Angerstein, Möller performed this work. They installed the Nave Organ, which speaks from the two grilles surrounding the choir loft; the dazzling Trompette en Chamade; and updated the console. Donald L. Clapper, Pine Street’s organist at the time, who served for 43 years, carefully guided this project, helping maintain the continuity of the beauty and character of the original organ with the new additions and advancements in organ technology.

Walker Technical Company
of Zionsville, Pennsylvania

2000

In 2000, the 32-foot stops were failing and needed to be replaced. Walker Technical Company of Zionsville, Pennsylvania, made the replacements. Walker used state-of-the-art digitally sampled voices, which give the needed underpinning to the organ in this large space. This workwas made possible by a generous gift from the estate of Albert Herbert.
