Our Servant Year member John Hager has been taking over our social media on Wednesdays to share some of the art and architecture of the Church of St. James the Less. Here he demonstrates the organ with that splendid Advent hymn, ‘Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending’.

In this First Week of Advent, we turn to the organ at St James-the-Less. The present organ was installed in 1927, built by Hillgreen, Lane and Co. of Alliance, Ohio. The present instrument is the third organ to have been in use at St James-the-Less. It is of 20 stops, two manuals, and is comprised of 1,118 pipes. Of more note than the instrument itself is the lovely case, designed by Wilfred Edwards Anthony (whom we encountered already, as he designed the Lady Altar) and built by William F. Ross of Boston. Heralding angels surmount the case facing into the west end of the church, and various carved and gilded kneeling angels ornament the panelling at eye-level. Although dedicated to the memory of William and Catharine Harding, it is not recorded who gave the fine organ case.

‘Thousand, thousand saints attend him/Swell the triumph of his train!’
