Notes

  • Information identifying this instrument from the Austin Organs, Inc. web site, accessed December 16, 2004: http://www.austinorgans.com/organ-research.htm. (James Cook. December 17, 2004)
  • Updated by Jason Derrick, who has heard or played the organ. In addition Jason Derrick gave this as a source of information: I was the organist at this church from 1998 to 2013. I was involved in the design and installation of the instrument and still play it regularly..

    The Great 8' Flute Celeste II was added several years after the original installation with pipes saved from the church's previous instrument, a circa 1950s Wicks. The pipes were sent to Austin's workshop and completely reworked. If I recall correctly, those two ranks were the last job sent out before Austin ceased production for a time in the mid 2000s. (James Cook. January 4, 2017)
