Notes

  • Identified through information adapted from E. M. Skinner/Aeolian-Skinner Opus List, by Sand Lawn and Allen Kinzey (Organ Historical Society, 1997), and included here through the kind permission of Sand Lawn:
    Addition of Mixture to Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1308/1308-A. (Database Manager. June 28, 2008)
  • Updated by Field Baber, who has heard or played the organ.
    The gallery organ has recently fallen silent. There was a power surge at 1:00 one Sunday afternoon while the organ was on. This fried the mother board in the main organ. So we took the powers supply from the balcony console that controls the gallery great gallery solo and gallery choir and placed it in the main console. However the gallery organ was having what we like to call an "organ fart." This is a problem that occurred every so often. What would happen is that all the valves in the gallery organ would open and every single pipe up there would play. (James Cook. February 18, 2017)
