Hutchings-Votey Organ
Hutchings-Votey; Boston, Mass.; 1907
4 manuals and pedal, 51 ranks

St. James' Hutchings-Votey organ was designed by George Hutchings in close collaboration with the Cathedral's first organist, Dr. Franklin Sawyer Palmer. It was Dr. Palmer's input that led to the position and orientation of the organ in the West Gallery rather than hidden in chambers on the East and West towers. The on-site tonal finishing of the organ was completed by Ernest M. Skinner, who had formerly worked for Hutchings and had recently started his own organ company. The organ, still in largely original condition, remains one of the last extant four manual organs built by the Hutchings-Votey company and is a treasured example of some of the finest organ building of the early Twentieth Century.
