Henry Pilcher constructed his first pipe organ in Dover, England, in 1820. Over a period of almost 125 years, four generations of family members-working first in England and then in the United States-built Henry Pilcher's Sons Organ Company into a business known for its high manufacturing standards. The institution they created placed organs throughout the United States and only saw its end with the outbreak of World War II. This reference volume, rich with previously undiscovered source material, presents a historical synopsis of the family business. Also included is the opus list of Pilcher organs, arranged both chronologically and by region, and published here for the first time. A vital source for Pilcher organ historians and admirers, this volume offers useful data for anyone seeking historical background or information on specific Pilcher organs.61-note manual compass (Cac4), 30-note pedal compass (Caf1). 15 stops.
