Notes

  • Information identifying this instrument from the Austin Organs, Inc. web site, accessed December 16, 2004: http://www.austinorgans.com/organ-research.htm. (James Cook. December 17, 2004)
  • Online update from John Galbreath -- This organ is still playable, but the administration of the church has discontinued its use in lieu of a new synthesizer instrument, claiming that the organ's air hoses are in need of replacement. (I have however secretly played the organ myself and observed no obstacles to its use.) (Database Manager. August 25, 2005)
