Database Manager on October 08, 2014:

Updated through online information from Allen Blodgett. -- My source is from what I have found so far in the building as of September 6th, 2014. It would appear that the work stopped temporarily during the open house of the Temple located on the same block. The Tabernacle was used a gathering spot before going inside the Temple and because of this it would have been impossible to voice an instrument in a noisy room.
