Rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by John Igoe, using information from this web site: http://www.quimbypipeorgans.com/index.php?option=com_organ&Itemid=27&oid=40. -- In 1993, Quimby rebuilt and added ranks to the church's 1921 Kilgen pipe organ. Revoiced the pipes for better evenness, clarity, and blend. Added new pipes (upperwork and mutations) to create a rich ensemble sound. Installed a Peterson multiplex relay and multilevel combination action. Releathered the existing windchests.
