Database Manager on May 31, 2011:

Updated through online information from Derek Stannard. -- The organ has gone under many alterations through the years; much of the original pipework remains, though now placed on new EP chests. Because of the transitions from tracker to EP, the console has been replaced, while the enclosed division is a manual/mechanical swell shoe. Many extensions have been added to "fill out" the organ, and greatly take away from the original integrity of the tonal ideas of E. and G.G. Hook.

Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Resig's work was a rebuilding of the previous instrument; Southfield recently renovated the console and winding. At present, the organ bears no nameplate. [Church earlier had an 1865 E. & G. G. Hook Op. 370.]
