This voicing table organ was made by David Moore in North Pomfret, Vermont, in 1978-1979. The organ wind chest dates from an 1856 Stevens and Jewett instrument, reconstructed as demonstration action model.
A voicing table is a windchest with a visible wind supply (foot operated in this case). These voicing tables were standard equipment in all nineteenth century American organ builders' shops. This one was made (windchest and keyboard) in Boston about 1856 in the shop of George Stevens and James Jewett, significant builders of their time.
