Database Manager on May 07, 2017:

The Chancel organ in St. Patrick's Old Cathedral was built by Hall & Labagh in 1859 for St. George's Chapel, Episcopal, in Newburgh, N.Y. About 1885, it was then moved to the Associate Reformed Church, Newburgh, N.Y., and later (ca. 1980) to the Convent of St. Helena, Vail's Gate, N.Y. At some point the organ was put into storage; it was later purchased by the Basilica and restored in 2016 by Brunner & Associates, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
