Census IDSHA1863b
LocationShanghai, unknown location (possibly Masonic Hall)
BuilderGray and Davison, Op. 10141
SpecsII/10 + Ped

This installation was a chamber organ delivered to Shanghai in 1863, and possibly erected in the Masonic Lodge on Canton Road, completed in 1862. It may have been the organ moved some years later to the next Masonic Hall, built on The Bund in 1865-67. But this is only a hypothesis advanced by The Project.

The specs were:

Great (C to g3) (“All in Venetian Swell”)

Open Diapason 8′

Stopped Diapason Bass 8′

Clarinet Flute 8′

Octave 4′

Flute 4′

Super Octave 2′


Dulciana 8′ (from Tenor c)

Concert Flute 8′

Oboe 8′

Pedal (C to e1) Bourdon 16′
Couplers SW/GT, GT/Ped, 2 combination pedals

In the Census (Appendix) to Keys to the Kingdom, this organ is mis-numbered as SHA1862c (it is correctly numbered in the text.)
