Notes

  • Altered. [This opus number on the Hook list for Second Presbyterian, Carlisle, PA.] (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through online information from Leek Pipe Organ Company. -- The wind chests were rebuilt by the Leek Pipe Organ Company. Leek refinished the pedal board, sprayed the façade with a gold bronze, installed a new blower motor, and re-felted and regulated the couplers and manuals. The original wind system is intact, but the pump and scoops have been removed by an unknown builder. (Database Manager. December 11, 2007)
