Database Manager on June 09, 2014:

This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by T. Daniel Hancock, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- Opus 163 is one of two instruments installed by Schoenstein in 2013, a two-manual, 14-rank sanctuary organ which is complemented by Opus 164, a three-manual, 35-rank gallery instrument; the former is operable from the three manual console in the gallery for Opus 164, but also has its own dedicated two-manual console in the sanctuary, which can also play the gallery organ.
