Database Manager on April 16, 2018:

This instrument is comprised largely of pipework from two older Wicks organs, both dating from the early 1950s. The first was originally in the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Baytown, Texas, while the second comes from St. Paul Lutheran Church in Baytown, Texas. A new principal chorus was installed, along with some additional ranks sourced from Pilcher, Kilgen and Hillgreen-Lane instruments. The console, a Holtkamp-style minimalist design, is new, as are all the electronic components. The instrument is mostly finished, with much of the work carried out by Bobsin Organ Builders of San Antonio. (church website)
