Notes: The organ was rebuilt by Schantz as Op. 295 in 1956 with a new console using the existing shell. A new two-manual Flentrop choir organ was installed in 1976 and a 3-manual Flentrop was installed in the gallery in 1977. In 1977, the main chambers were sealed and, in 1998, the Skinner/Schantz was removed and parted out.
