Updated by Jeffrey H. Gray, who has heard or played the organ.
Wicks' Opus 5900 was last played on October 29, 2017. The pipework was removed by Patrick J. Murphy & Associates, returned to their shop, and nearly all of the pipes were cleaned, revoiced and included in their Opus 65, which was installed in the church in December 2017.
