Notes

  • Status Note: There 1987. (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • In new building. Probably EP. Rebuild and enlargement of previous organ from old building which contained pipework and components from Pilcher and Aeolian-Skinner. (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. -- This was a rebuild and enlargement of Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1330 which had been built for the previous sanctuary. The AS console and pipe work were retained, with the many "prepared for" ranks added including the entire Choir division. The organ is extant, and in regular use for services and concerts (2007). (Database Manager. September 7, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from John *****. -- The majority of the pipes are on the right hand side of the chancel at the front, and extend in a "L" shape across the front of the room and down one side. There is an antiphonal division of three ranks dating from 1989 in chambers at the left side of the chancel. Many pipes are exposed, and others may be seen behind a screen. The shutters of the choir division are visible. There is a trompette en chamade in the corner of the "L". The original Aeolian-Skinner Console was rebuilt in 1999 and the combination action computerized with 99 levels of memory. MIDI and transposer were installed. Nine of the 11 ranks from the Original Pilcher Organ of 1925 are still in use. All but one rank (Melodia) from the Aeolian-Skinner upgrade of 1958 are still in use. As it currently exists, the organ has 48 ranks and 2790 pipes. Information from "History of the Morrison United Methodist Church Organ" compiled by Thomas A. DeWitt, Organist/Choirmaster since 1971.
