Notes

  • Information identifying this instrument from the Austin Organs, Inc. web site, accessed December 31, 2004: http://www.austinorgans.com/organ-research.htm. (James Cook. January 8, 2005)
  • Updated through online information from steve bournias. -- 28 rks of the 1900 opus 37 were retained in 1960. In 1936 the reeds were revoiced by Austin. The prep stops in the Antiphonal Swell were mostly correct except the 2 strings. Austin did not follow the original plan of 1960 and supply in 1996 a 50 scale viola and comparable celeste but instead sent some VDOs. (Database Manager. February 12, 2012)
  • Updated by Mike Fazio, the builder.

    Austin did not perform the work in 1996. (Stephen Hall. November 13, 2018)
