Database Manager on September 26, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a rebuild and augmentation of the parish's existing 1976 E. & G.G. Hook & Hastings, opus 821. The existing manual chests were retained and fitted with E-P pull-downs. The Swell had a prepared-for 8' Vox Humana. The Swell 16' Bourdon was borrowed to the Pedal at 16' & 8'. The Pedal 16' wood Open Diapason was unified to play at 16' & 8' pitches. And the 16' Bourdon plays at 16', 8', 5-1/3', & 4' pitches. The 8' Violon Cello remained straight. The console was placed in a choir gallery on the left side of the sanctuary with the organist facing across the chancel.
