  • Relocated and installed here with the help of parishioners. (James Cook. January 1, 2009)
  • Updated through information from John Speller, posted to PIPECHAT January 1, 2009: -- "It really is a very nice little instrument. The pipework is in pristine condition, and still cone-tuned to its original pitch somewhat sharp of current concert pitch. As the article mentions the project was overseen by Michael Quimby, and QPO did quite a bit of the restoration work on the pipework -- the pipe shop doing the metal pipes and yours truly working on the wooden ones. Much of the mechanical work was subcontracted to Richard Hamar, who was assisted by the organist Dr. Rosi Penner Kaufman and other church members." (James Cook. January 1, 2009)
  • Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. (Database Manager. January 12, 2009)
