Notes

  • This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Paul Marchesano, using information from this web site: http://stmarks.episcopalky.org/Worship/music-at-worship.html. -- The organ reportedly retained a small number of ranks from the previous Moller installation (perhaps a celeste). (Database Manager. February 22, 2014)
  • Console rebuilt in 2017 by D. C. Schroth Organ Builders. Push-button stops replaced by oblique drawknobs on side terraces. (Database Manager. May 27, 2017)
