by Stage Tube - Dec 28, 2017

The great Aeolian/Skinner organ of St. Bartholomew's Church is the largest in New York City, and the fifth largest church organ in the Western Hemisphere. It is one of the few organs in the world to feature a division of the instrument whose pipes reside in the dome of the church, allowing for acoustically brilliant effects with timbres such as ethereal celestes, colorful flutes, orchestral reeds, and brilliant trumpet sounds. Aptly entitled The Celestial Organ, this division was out of commission and completely restored by the Foley-Baker Organ Co. during the 14-month restoration of St. Bart's dome (see it in time-lapse photography), which was unveiled in September of this year.
