VIDEO: David Moore, Organ Maker

David Moore of Pomfret took an interest in organs when he removed and restored an organ built in 1852 that used to be housed inside the Masonic Hall. That is still in use now. Moore went on to build and restore organs as his life work. Take a look at the organ custom build and installed in Woodstock’s St. James church and listen to his story.

I am one of the lucky organists who plays the 1852 Stevens-Moore organ in Iowa City’s Zion Lutheran Church. The Zion community and lots of Americans interested in historic organs are still thankful that David Moore and John Atwood rescued the old organ. It is a magnificent instrument. Photographs of the Stevens organ, and the Stevens-Moore organ, can be viewed at the following links in the Organ Historical Society’s database. If people in the Woodstock community have additional photographs of or stories about the Stevens organ in the Christian Church or Masonic Hall, please contact me. You would help us document the organ’s history. Thank you, Vermont Standard, for interviewing our friend David.
