This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by T. Daniel Hancock, using information found in Ogasapian, 1977. -- Ogasapian, 1977, notes "The instrument was housed in an arched recess behind the pulpit, but the console was situated near the left-front pews, in the choir loft. The trackers thus had a forty-foot run, including a right-angle turn. Nevertheless, the touch was described as 'perfectly easy and under full control of the organist.' . . . 'The case which may be described as perendicular Gothic, is 27 feet high, 20 feet wide, and 8 feet deep.'"
