Jim is known for his involvement with the organ at First Baptist Church, Niagara Falls, New York, which was designed by Stanley Saxton, professor of Organ at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York, and built and installed in 1939 by the Hall Organ Company of West Haven, Connecticut, as their Opus 682. From the late 1980s to the mid 1990s, James D. Flood, the Director of Music, redesigned and rebuilt the instrument which had suffered from age and water damage. With the help of generous support from the congregation, funds were raised to update, enlarge and improve the fine organ. A state-of-the-art multi-level computerized combination action was installed, and various components were completely rebuilt.

Additional stops, originally intended for the organ but omitted in the original installation, were installed. Basically the instrument follows the precepts of Ernest M. Skinner in scaling, while adding such ranks as necessary for his later ideas, as well as those of Stanley Saxton and James Flood. Restorative revoicing and tonal adjustments were carefully carried out, paying special attention to the scaling of the original overall concepts and carefully fitting in the additional ranks. Jim is an organ technician, performer, and lover of American organ music.

He is helping to keep the tradition alive! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
