Notes

  • Identified through information adapted from E. M. Skinner/Aeolian-Skinner Opus List, by Sand Lawn and Allen Kinzey (Organ Historical Society, 1997), and included here through the kind permission of Sand Lawn:
    Extant; unaltered. (Database Manager. June 11, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- According to the church website, the organ was originally designed and voiced for a long, narrow and reverberant gothic space; for some unknown reason, the organ was not redesigned for the eventual contemporary round and acoustically dead room; installation began late 1956 and was first used on April 7, 1957. (Database Manager. August 19, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Andrew Schaeffer. (Database Manager. August 24, 2015)
