Watson, this volume publishes essays delivered at the colloquium Historic Organs Reconsidered: Restoration and Conservation for a New Century, held in 1999 at St. Luke's Church (1609) in Smithfield, Virginia, where the 1630 English chamber organ served as a backdrop and an example for consideration.

Brunner, Göran Grahn, and Darcy Kuronen.
