Notes

  • Identified through online information from Stephen Hall. -- The original organ had 115 ranks but it was split between two auditoriums, this portion is the 40 ranks from the South auditorium. Milnar added six more ranks and later replaced the damaged Choir Clarinet. Organ is currently (Dec 2009) in use for services and concerts (information compiled from church website; online article in the Memphis "Comercial Appeal" dated Dec 12, 2009; and builder's website).
