Database Manager on May 08, 2012:

Updated through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- The 1907 Lyon & Healy, formerly in the church, was subsequently rebuilt and enlarged at various points during the twentieth century. One rank of pipes, the Swell 16 & 8 Gedeckt, was retained for this organ. Other ranks, as identified, are from Quimby vintage stock (although they are rescaled and revoiced). All other pipework is new by Quimby Pipe Organs, as well as the console and all mechanical components.
