All Saints Organist Publishes New Book
Feb. 7 - Stephen Pinel, our organist and choir director, announced recently that his latest book, The Work List of Henry Erben: Organ Builder in Nineteenth Century New York, has been released by the Organ Historical Society (OHS) Press.
This hard-bound, limited edition volume traces Erben's work through extensive "annotations, documentation, and stoplists," according to the publisher. Photography by Len Levasseur and William Van Pelt illuminates Pinel's scholarship, which is the culmination of 35 years of research.
Particularly noteworthy, this volume contains facsimiles of several published lists and catalogues by Erben, most of which have "never [been] seen by modern historians" and making the book "a must for every collector of American organ history," according to the publisher.
In addition to leading our music program, Stephen is the author of several books and has served as the OHS archivist for many years. We congratulate Stephen on this most recent achievement.
