"The final result is an organ with brilliance, clarity, and a stirring ensemble, together with ample soft stops and solo stops". This must have been something of a landmark in the history organ recycling. "Many potentially fine organs can be revitalized in this way by using the best of the old pipe work, replacing useless ranks with new ranks and employing lots of imagination. The cost is far less than the cost of a new organ, and in the present case was less than the cost of the usually recommended make of electronic substitute." /ds/
