The prototype for this small practice instrument was Opus 37, built at the request of Melville Smith, renowned organ instructor at Wellesley College, and for many years Director of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge. Opus 59 differs from Smith’s instrument in that it has an additional stop, Sesquialtera I-II on the Great, and an extended Pedal Bourdon mechanically triplexed at 16′, 8′ and 4′ pitches.
