Ernest M. Skinner & Son Opus List


This list is used with the kind permission of the OHS and has the support of both Allen Kinzey and Sand Lawn, compilers of the Aeolian-Skinner Opus List.

Readers are reminded that stoplists posted on Aeolian-Skinner Archives are intended to show the stoplists of the organs as they were when they left the factory and that this list is meant only to supplement, not replace, the published list. A much more complete overview of the organs, as well as notes on current condition and/or alterations, can be found in the OHS publication. See the links page for ordering information.

We are deeply indebted to Allen Kinzey for the insight, factory specifications and shop notes that he has provided.

We would also like to thank Pat Parris, who plays Op. 511 in Murfreesboro, TN, for providing the photo of the Skinner nameplate and William Van Pelt for providing the photo of the Ernest M. Skinner nameplate.

Note: Years shown indicate when contracts were signed and do NOT reflect years of installation.
