Database Manager on June 04, 2013:

Updated through online information from Jim Thompson. -- This organ was blended with Möller Opus 8883 from Trinity Cathedral, Columbia, SC. The initial work was performed by Robert W. Turner, Jr until his untimely passing in August 2004. The work was finished by Thomas Helms.
The Schlicker pipes became the Antiphonal/Processional organ with the new Trompette En Chamade in the west end of the modern architecture church. The Ancillary organ is in the south transept of the church with the bulk of the organ across the front (east end) of the church.

Database Manager on June 17, 2009:

Identified through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Organ began as Schlicker mechanical action instrument built in 1969; this was substantially rebuilt by Robert Turner beginning in 1997, combining it with a Möller from Trinity Cathedral in Columbia, South Carolina, as a new electrical action instrument. The instrument in its present form was completed by Thomas Helms.
