Central Congregational Church, Providence, RI

AEolian-Skinner Organ Company, Inc. Opus 1440, 1964

CentralCongregational

Central Congregational Church, built in 1893, eventually contained a 1917 Austin Organ under a spectacular dome built by the famed Guastavino Tile Company. The Austin was replaced in 1964 by a Donald Gillett-designed AEolian-Skinner organ.

Despite some minor tonal changes, the organ existed essentially unaltered by the time Spencer Organ Company was contracted to restore it in 2009. A complete releathering of all mechanism and bellows, complete pipe restoration and re-regulating, and a solid state combination action, completed the work.
