Andrew Scanlon on April 20, 2020:

Around 2010 or 2011 Charles Callahan served as consultant for the church. The church undertook some tonal restoration of the Flue work, but not the reeds. Plans to restore the reeds were in place as of 2019 but no decisions made. Goulding & Wood console has had mechanical issues though the organ is fully playable.
