Notes

  • Identified through information from Keith S. Toth. -- This was the last organ to be designed by the late organbuilder Guy Thérien (1947-2001). All pipework was built before M. Thérien's untimely death. The organ was finished and installed by his firm under the direction of Jacques L'Italien and Alain Guilbault. Messrs. L'Italien and Guilbault voiced the organ in its original New York City apartment location. (Steven E. Lawson. May 23, 2017)
  • Updated by Keith S. Toth.
    Les Ateliers Bellavance moved this from New York City to a newly constructed private residence in the Carytown/Museum District section of Richmond, Virginia during May 2017. The organ is unaltered and in excellent condition. It is used regularly. (Database Manager. July 15, 2017)
