  • Updated through online information from Scot Huntington.
    Negotiations for the organ were initiated between Hermann Schlicker and the organist of the church, Donald Ingram. This was one of the first organ designed and built after the death of Schlicker in December, 1974 and without the input of his guiding hand. The 3-stop Great reed chorus and 32' reed were prepared for, and the Great reeds were installed by Greg Hand. The digital 32' reed and digital combination action are not original, and may have been installed by Carey in 1992 or shortly thereafter. (Database Manager. October 22, 2016)
