Database Manager on April 24, 2018:

Updated by Robert McCormick, who has heard or played the organ.
While the historic chancel organ is being restored by Emery Brothers, Foley-Baker has removed the Cornel Zimmer and Walker Digital additions from 2002. (With the exception of the Trompette-en-chamade and the Flauto Mirabilis; the latter is being relocated to the chancel organ. Additionally, in conjunction with Emery Brothers, Sam Hughes is regulating and revoicing the English Horn and French Horn, in the chancel String division.) Replacing the Zimmer pipe and Walker digital additions are 6 vintage G. Donald Harrison stops (8-, 4-, 4-, 2-, 2 2/3-, Oboe) from the organs of St. Thomas Church, New York City, and St. Paul-s School, Concord, New Hampshire.
