Product Description

Just a few uncirculated, new copies have been found of this book published in 1979 by Sunbury Press. It traces the evolution of organs and their builders in New England from the Colonial era to the 20th century. From the first church organ in New England (owned by Thomas Brattle,) to nineteenth century builders such as E. & G. G. Hook, William Johnson, and William B. D. Simmons, America’s leading organ historian Barbara Owen offers the only comprehensive discussion of the artistic supremacy of organ builders in America’s golden age.
