\r\nThe \"firm in Boston\" is the Spencer Organ Co. There is no Crescendo pedal.
Updated through online information from Michael Smith. -- The parish is very proud of the instrument and understands its value. I'm told some renovation work was done relatively recently by "a firm in Boston", name not known. At some point (perhaps during that work?) the keytops were apparently replaced with a rather nasty plastic compound. The church is a very pretty small room, somewhat marred from the musical point of view by an abundance of thick carpeting. The instrument has a very nice robust sound and it's surprisingly versatile for such a small instrument. Each manual has three preset buttons below the keys, labeled 1-3, and a preset cancel, labeled '0'. There appears to be no way to change these, and the presets do not operate the stop knobs, so you can't remove a stop from a preset combination once it's on; the preset cancel is your only recourse. Preset cancel also does not cancel any stops you may have manually drawn. According to a plaque on the case, the organ was given as a memorial to a young man killed in 1916 while serving as an ambulance driver during the first world war.
