Database Manager on August 09, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from Dr. Gregory Hamilton. -- The organ is laid out in several antiphonal chests on all sides of the Abbey. The instrument was unfinished from 1958 until 2002. The instrument was completed in 2002. The builder was the Mid-states Pipe Organ Co. There is a rumor that the completion was according the the original stop list proposed by Ernest White, but I have not confirmed this.
