Updated by Peter Davis, who has heard or played the organ.
I was Organist-Choirmaster at Ascension 1999-2005. The parish moved to another facility in 2014. Most furnishings were sold at auction, save for the Kimball and the Steinway Grand (1888). Turned over to the Diocese, the building was deconsecrated, being converted (eventually) to senior/low income housing. Sanctuary to be used for performing arts and community gatherings. Future of the Kimball is uncertain. (Choir division became unusable shortly after the Swell was returned to service by Niagara Organ Works, and the organ's wind pressures and tuning (altered 1970s by Delaware) were restored, as well. A shame: a glorious organ in a glorious acoustic!
