Database Manager on October 20, 2019:

Installed as 4/59 Aeolian-Skinner Op. 1119 in 1949; Austin 8-rank Antiphonal added in 1983; replaced by Reuter in 1996, retaining only the Aeolian-Skinner Solo stops, which were incorporated in the new Choir division, and the Austin Antiphonal; another person was hired to revoice the organ c.2000; due to building repairs, the organ was removed to storage in 2005 and reinstalled by Emery Brothers; the organist removed the Allen electronics and installed Walker (mostly Pedal); Bynum Petty and Larry Trupiano did tonal work on the main organ and also replaced the Austin Antiphonal (except for the 8' Trumpet), replacing the pipework with a generously scaled and gently voiced principal chorus (8-4-2-IV).
