Notes

  • Updated through online information from The Rev'd Mark McGuire. -- Rebuild of relocated Aeolian-Skinner organ. John Hendriksen, the former head flue voicer for A-S went over the instrument. He added a IV-rank Fourniture to the Great, an independent 2 2/3' Nazard to the Swell, and a new Viola from 4' up in Choir, taking the old Viola pipes and turning them into a Celeste for the Viola. All new pipes were made by Thomas Anderson, former pipe shop foreman for A-S, and naturally to A-S patterns, scales and style. (Database Manager. July 30, 2009)
