The Organ in Byfield Parish Church was built c. 1911 by E.W. Lane, Waltham, Massachusetts for Puffer Memorial Methodist Church, Morrisville,Vermont. With the assistance of the Organ Clearing House the organ was purchased by the church and moved to the Chicopee, Massachusetts workshop of the Stuart Organ Company for rebuilding.
New casework of pine was constructed,
designed to complement the architecture of
the building. The revised tonal scheme,
encompassing 689 pipes distributed among 11
stops, is designed to provide a maximum
degree of flexibility in service playing.
Case design, voicing and tonal finishing
were by Richard S. Hedgebeth, head of the
firm. Also assisting in the project were
John Alberti, Lynn Champlin, David Koziol,
Alan Laufman. Christopher Lavoie, Randall
Steere and Lorenzo Velez.
