Technical Details

Notes

  • This entry describes a new home for an organ that was relocated without either tonal or mechanical changes.
    Identified by James R. Stettner, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Current Cathedral organist, Donald Fellows.
    The transplanted Kimball lasted into the 1950's. It was to have been replaced by an Aeolian-Skinner, but G. Donald Harrison's death, related delays, and an increased cost caused the Cathedral to cancel the contract. Subsequent disposition of the Kimball is not presently known. (Database Manager. July 9, 2019)
