Database Manager on April 16, 2010:

Updated through online information from Tom Scheck. -- The information above states that five ranks of this organ were retained in the 1969 Hillgreen Lane. Robert Hillgreen, Jr. informed me in 1968 that Hillgreen Lane planned to retain four ranks from the Skinner, the Great Diapason, the Swell Salicional and Voix Celeste and the Pedal Bourdon/Gedeckt unit. The Skinner Diapason plays at 8', 4' and 2' pitches in the Pedal division of the Hillgreen Lane as well as at 16' pitch, with 12 new open wood pipes. The Skinner Bourdon plays at 16' and 8' pitches in the Pedal of the Hillgreen Lane, with the top two pipes of the 8' pitch being new stopped metal pipes. Therefore, I question that this rank played at 4' pitch on the Skinner organ, as shown on the Skinner Opus List. I'm not sure why the top two notes of the 8' stop on the Hillgreen Lane required new pipes. The answer is likely either that Hillgreen Lane rescaled the stop two notes or that the original Pedal division was only 30 notes instead of 32.
