Notes

  • Status Note: There 1991 (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Austin console installed in 1957. [Stops & ranks shown are from Pilcher ledger.] Rebuilt in 1991 by Guzowski & Steppe. [C. Johnson gives size as 47st 35r.] The church also has a 1975 4m 57rk Ruffatti, (additions & revoicing 1991) in a rear gallery. The new console (1991) for this organ can also play the Pilcher. But the Pilcher has its own console (which is just 3 manuals).
