Technical Details

Notes

  • An original installation. Identified by T. Daniel Hancock, using information found in The Stopt Diapason, June 1982. -- The Stopt Diapason, June 1982, reports "The current organ is a 1972 11-rank unit Schlicker, but worthy of mention becuase it is the first known example in the Chicago area of a completely encased and free-standing unified organ, something not usually done for unit organs. This physical treatment plus the advantage of good acoustics in the all-hard-surface church give the organ more power and presence than one would imagine. Dr. Paul G. Bunjes was consultant.
