  • Organs to visit in NYC

    I may have a chance to go to New York for a weekend in July. Where would you recommend I go to see some organ?

      Some suggestions which come to mind - although I don't live in New York, so I'm no expert:</P>


      The Riverside Church - http://www.theriversidechurchny.org/events/?organ</P>


      St. Bartholomew's - http://www.stbarts.org/organ.asp</P>


      Cathedral of St. John the Divine - http://www.stjohndivine.org/worship_music.html</P>


      Trinity Wall Street - http://www.trinitywallstreet.org/music/?organ</P>


      St. Patrick's Cathedral - http://www.saintpatrickscathedral.or...fications.html</P>


      St. Thomas' Church- http://www.saintthomaschurch.org/Organs.html</P>


      Hope this helps! </P>

        The Church of St. Paul the Apostle - http://www.stpaultheapostle.org/about-thechurch.html(I note from the home page that they are having a picnic on the 12th--maybe you could crash it?)</P>

            Hold off on St. John the Divine- unless, of course, you just want to experience the sheer size of that architectural folly. </p>

            </p>

            But the organs aren't yet back online after the fire of December 2001.

              great spaces for whatever need may seem needless</P>


              similarly with great organs</P>


              y have 141 rks when 50 loud theater ranks can do the same?</P>


              the ''folly'' of john the divine</P>


              it is a room and a gdh a-s organ unlike any anywhere</P>

                  I personally wouldn't set foot in Trinity Wall Street. [+o(] Here is my list:</P>
                  <UL>
                  <LI>St. Mary the Virgin (of course)</LI>
                  <LI>St. Thomas (with three fine organs)</LI>
                  <LI>St. Patrick</LI>
                  <LI>Riverside - lots[/list]


                  If you likenostalgia, you might go to St. George's or St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia University (E. Power Biggs), or to Calvary Episcopal (Calvin Hampton). FYI, Calvary and St. George arenot farfrom each other (historic First Pres is close by as well). Church of the Heavenly Rest has an immense organ, and is interesting architecturally (if not acoustically). Temple Emanu-El has a very nice instrument.</P>


                  For something a little different, you might go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which houses a fine collection of instruments (including a rare Thomas Appleton). Also... Radio City Music Hall is lots of fun.</P>


                  You might find this website of use when planning your visit: New York City Organ Project</P>

                    Also try this fascinating UK website:</p>

                    http://www.churchcrawler.co.uk/</p>

                    There's a section on Manhattan churches. It sure taught me a lot! </p>
