This instrument shipped from England to Cape Cod in 1854 is in use in the "Captain's Church" (South Dennis Congregational Church) on Cape Cod. It may have been located at the DeBleis Concert Hall, Boston, Massachusetts prior to its relocation to the church, according to John T. Fesperman, Jr. (former Professor of Organ, New England Conservatory, Boston, Massachusetts). It has pull down pedals. Simple cabinet case. It is located in the right front corner of the colonial building. Console is recessed with drawknobs and the case is flat on both sides. In 1975, this contract was with C.B. Fisk, Inc. at the time of the company split and work was subcontracted back to Andover Organ Company. Tonal work was done by Charles Fisk himself. * NEW pipes made by N.P. Mander Limited, London, England and are copies of other Snetzler pipes. Voiced and installed by Andover Organ Company.
