Lawrell D Arnold on December 12, 2020:

This is a beautiful example from 1910 that was given a second life. The instrument fits wonderfully in the chancel as if it was always there from the first day the church opened its doors. Considering the size and scope of the organ, the command and warmth that it has as it speaks throughout the church is impressive. This is certainly a gem of an instrument.
