ACTION: Austin E-P Universal ™ VOICES: 10 STOPS: 14 RANKS: 11 PIPES: 722 NOTES The organ was originally built for the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Seattle. It was the parish's second pipe organ, and second Austin. The previous building – now the chapel – housed a 2-manual, 7-rank Austin, Opus 881 built in 1919. It was installed in a wide, elevated chamber on the left side of the chancel. The console was placed opposite the chamber on the right side with the organist facing the chamber – congregation to the left. The Great was on the right-hand and the Swell on the left. The Pedal Diapason is of open wood for the first 24 pipes, and the first nine of those were horizontally mounted behind the two manual swellboxes. The Austin was removed by Marceau & Associates of Portland, OR. in preparation for the new III-manual, 45-rank Fritz Noack tracker late in 1997. It was purchased by St. Hilda- St. Patrick Episcopal Church of Edmonds, WA. and stored there for a few years before being installed by parishioner Giles Shepherd with help from C. Brantley Duddey of Penn- sylvania. It replaced a II-manual & pedal, 7-rank Estey reed organ. Sources: Austin Opus List; JRS; extant organ Documented: May 21, 1992 by Jim Stettner
