Database Manager on May 02, 2005:

The choir division was largely made up of pipework from the 1906 John Brown organ. Used largely recycled material, much of it from C. S. Haskell, Op. 313, 2m. about 18 or 19 ranks, on electro-pneumatic slider chests, original location unknown. Cannarsa installed the slider chests atop walk-in and crawl-in air boxes that appear to have been built by the Austin organ company prior to about 1904 and relocated to Sacred Heart Church. Rebuilt in 2003 by Russel Meyer & Assoc.
