About the Organ

Mrs. Marie Schwartz made it possible for Transfiguration to commission one of the finest pipe organs recently built for a New York church. Designed and built by the C.B. Fisk company of Gloucester, Massachusetts, the Arnold Schwartz Memorial Organ (Opus 92) was finished and dedicated in 1988. It is a tracker, or mechanical-action organ, designed largely in the 18th century North German tonal style but with an extensive 19-century French Cavaillé-Coll typeswell division. This is an instrument eminently fit to perform the organ literature of all periods, as well as presenting and accompanying traditional Anglican liturgical music.
