Updated through online information from Stephen Keyl. -- Relocated in June 2013 from St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Tucson, Arizona, USA. In June 2012, just before Paul Fritts & Co. Opus 35 was installed at St. Alban's, two technicians from the Fritts shop disassembled the Walker organ and prepared it for transport. St. Alban's stored the organ for a year until the purchase was completed. Willowgrove intends to have it reassembled without change by the same technicians who dismantled it.
