Database Manager on January 25, 2008:

Updated through online information from Ellen Wright. -- The instrument is in playing condition. It sustained significant water damage at the end of the century, repaired by Richard Scott Walker. Some (rather ill-advised) work was apparently done on it by Douglas Pennoyer & by Midmer-Losh during the 60s. Several of the trumpet pipes are currently broken. The wiring is messed-up, to say the least. But it goes. The parishioners like it. And I can get music out of it. ew
