Database Manager on August 19, 2008:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- According to the church website, the organ was originally designed and voiced for a long, narrow and reverberant gothic space; for some unknown reason, the organ was not redesigned for the eventual contemporary round and acoustically dead room; installation began late 1956 and was first used on April 7, 1957.
