Database Manager on July 12, 2019:

Updated by William Dunklin, who has heard or played the organ. May 2019 the Wicks was parted out to make way for a larger rebuilt instrument to be installed by B. Rule & Company June / July 2019. A handful of ranks from the Wicks swell were retained for use in the new instrument. The rest of the Wicks was sent to the landfill.
