A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORGAN AND BELLSThe Gallery Organ at Grace Church was installed in 1886 by theHutchings Co. of Boston. The black walnut case and stenciled façadepipes have become an iconic symbol of Grace Church. In 1902, the choirmoved from the gallery to the small chancel in the front of the church,and in 1904 the console was moved to the chancel as well. When the newchancel was built in 1912, the Hutchings Co. supplied a small chancelorgan to supplement the gallery organ. The present twin chancel organcases were also installed at that time. In 1923, Casavant Freres built alarge new chancel organ of over 1800 pipes, and supplied a new consoleto control both organs.In 1959, the vestry authorized a complete overhaul and expansionof both organs. Edward B. Gammons, a member of the National JointCommission on Church Music served as consultant, along with GraceChurch organist Fred Cronhimer, and Lawrence Phelps of Casavant.Much of the Hutchings pipework from 1886 was included in the project,including the 32’ Soubasse. The Chancel Organ was enlarged to 3 manuals and pedal, and a newconsole was provided to control the entire organ. This project culminated in 103 ranks of pipes (68in the gallery and 35 in the chancel) with a total of 6,124 pipes.In 2010, a new 4-manual console was designed and built by the R.A. Colby firm ofTennessee, and Walker Digital supplied over 100 digital ranks of pipes. This project, spearheadedby Director of Music Mark Johnson, was intended to compensate for the increasing of number ofdead notes in the organ, and the dire need to re-leather the entire instrument.It is our hope that we will be able to restore this noble and historic instrument in the nearfuture so that it may continue as the touchstone for music at Grace Church in Providence.Lewis T. Downes, the first organist of record at Grace Church, proposed the idea of towerbells to the vestry, and a committee was formed in March 1860 to solicit subscriptions. The 16 bellswere first rung on Easter Day, March 31, 1861. The bells, cast by Henry N.Hooper and Company in Boston in 1861, are placed in two decks in the tower.Their aggregate weight is 8 tons, and their original cost was approximately 6000. The bells are unusual in design and character in that they were foundedon the proportion of the Spanish bell, which is longer in the waist and givesthe minor third in the harmonics instead of the major third that is morecommonly used.The bells are playable both manually from a clavier in the second floorof the tower and automatically by means of a programmable mechanismprovided by the Verdin Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The WestminsterChime Clock, which plays the bells on the hour and half-hour with a separateset of hammers, was first utilized on Easter Day, March 31, 1929, exactly 58years after the bells were rung for the first time. The bell mechanism is again inneed of restoration, with three bells currently not sounding.

All Life is Weak and relies upon the Grace of God to sustain it. We see this Grace in how a mother sustains a Weak child. Grace is the noun. Love is the verb, which means: showing Grace. Lets see how we find Grace in the 3-Square. Once again, the short line on the left is thin, not thick like the bar at the top.
