This is an ongoing project started by Sarah Bach who is both a professional singer in Boston and Executive Director of Bach by Design, a firm that designs websites and handles public relations.
The goal is to reference and account for any and all pipe organs existing on Cape Cod and the Islands.
If you have any information about pipe organs, both existing or pre-existing, please contact Sarah Bach via email listed below.
The only prerequisite for submitting info on an organ is that it must be a pipe organ.
*Listings for electronic and hybrid organs will not be posted.
Please look to other sources for inclusion.*
Pipe organs that were altered electronically will be listed but no update or information will be supplied beyond that.
Photographs, specifications as well as articles written about an instrument are welcomed.
I grew up on Cape Cod and my mother being an organist, I came to the appreciation of the "King of Instruments" rather early in my life.
It is my hope that this database will continue to grow and be a resource to all who want to learn more about pipe organs or already know the joy of hearing and seeing them and would like to plan a visit to see one of these fine instruments.
My research on Cape organs started back in 1999 when I was involved in a longterm project on an organ committee.
I was the research person and through that I accumulated quite a bit of interesting information and photographs.
My camera had become an appendage with all the "organ crawls" and meetings of our committee.
Being that there wasn't a site dedicated to cataloguing the pipe organs of the Cape and Islands, I decided to create a website and it was launched in 2003.
The website was the fruition of a final project for a web design course and continues to grow and evolve as information is sent along to me.
Thank you to all of you who have been so kind to share information about these fine organs.
Please do not copy these pages without permission of the creator/website owner.
The information offered here is for your perusal but it may not be used elsewhere on another website without permission from the sources provided on each of the organ pages.
Please respect the churches, musicians and photographers who have allowed their information to be posted here.
Information about the pipe organs has come from tremendous research and the help of many including The Organ Historical Society (OHS) and George Nelson, creator of Organs of the United States and Canada Database (OUSCDB).
