Database Manager on June 09, 2007:

Updated through information from Tony Meloni, posted to PIPORG-L: "We also did a fair amount of restoration work on the organ at Central Union Church, which contains another Aeolian Skinner from that period. It is a it larger, with a lot more 'spike' to it due to the scaling and style of the principals, mixtures and reeds. The Skinner console is long gone, having been replaced by a four manual Austin console in the 1990s (pre-Ed Odell). It works very well."
