The Newberry Organ was designed and built by Richards, Fowkes & Company at their shop in Ooltewah, Tennessee. Upon completion, the organ was disassembled and transported to Cleveland, Ohio, to be installed at the Church of the Covenant. This fascinating time-lapse video condenses the first week of the installation process into about 5 minutes. Initially, the organ's parts are laid on pews throughout the sanctuary. Then as the craftsmen reassemble the parts in the rear gallery of the church, the magnificent instrument begins to take shape. (To make this video, still photographs were captured at one-minute intervals. Nearly 3,800 photos were obtained. The images are played back 600 times faster than normal to create the time-lapse effect.)
