Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 089990128X, Paperback)

This volume brings together a series of essays delivered at the international colloquium "Historic Organs Reconsidered: Restoration and Conservation for a New Century," held in 1999 at Historic St. Luke’s Church in Smithfield, Virginia. Part 1 of the book places the often-vexing issues of organ restoration in the broader context of musical instrument restoration and historic preservation, and considers the implications of emerging "forensic" examination methods for restoration ethics. Part 2 visits two conservation laboratories, providing an inside glimpse of new approaches to preservation-minded restoration. Part 3 focuses specifically on the Historic St. Luke’s organ and its musical history, with attention to the organ’s possible builder, its first owners, and early repertory. Part 4 offers perspectives on restoration through case studies of other historic organs in Europe and America.
