Skinner Organ Company Opus 368, 1922

Swampscott

By the time Spencer Organ Company was contracted to restore Skinner Opus 368, the organ’s original console was missing, as were many of the original stops; others had been revoiced as to be unrecognizable. The mechanical core of the organ, however, along with roughly half its pipes, remained intact, and in easily-restorable condition.

Mechanical restoration began in 2001, including a complete releathering of all actions. The restoration was completed in 2007 with the installation of a vintage three-manual Skinner console, and the restoration of the original tonal scheme, using vintage and replica pipework.
