This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Paul Marchesano, using information from this web site: http://stmarks.episcopalky.org/Worship/music-at-worship.html. -- The organ reportedly retained a small number of ranks from the previous Moller installation (perhaps a celeste).
