Notes

  • Identified through online information from Keith S. Toth. -- In June 2013, the organ was moved from White Plains, NY by Les Ateliers Bellavance (Jean-Félix Bellavance and Jean-Sébastien Dufour) to Keith Tóth's apartment in New York City. At that time the organ was revoiced by Jean-Sébastien Dufour to better suit the acoustics of the music room in the apartment. The current voicing is in keeping with the original French symphonic voicing. No other changes were made to the instrument. (Database Manager. September 2, 2014)
  • Updated through online information from Keith S. Toth. (Database Manager. April 18, 2015)
