    Before this organ was restored, music like this could not be played because so much of the pipe organ did not work correctly. The clarinet barely played because of the former condition of the pipe - which you see to your left.

    2 of the reeds you are hearing are the oboe and clarinet. The clarinet had to be taken apart having metal replaced because of corrosion. The craftsmen at A. R. Schopp's Sons made these repairs with the skill of surgeons. David Schopp voice the final stop. The stop is one of the best organ clarinet stops I have ever heard.

    Pipes either played when they should not or did not play, and there was the constant rushing sound of air leaking from the organ. After the restoration it is now like a new pipe organ. This restoration was made possible with the gifts from over 1500 people from around the world. Many of the donors have never been to Brooklyn.

    The work was carried out by two large American Organ Builders - A.R. Schopp's Sons, Inc and Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc.

    Titular Organist Olivier Latry of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, will dedicate the restored organ on October 18, 2013.
