Notes: Replaced by Fisk Op. 116 in 2001 and moved to Truro Episcopal Church in Fairfax, Virginia, by Goulding & Wood in 2000. Apparently, the Virginia church seceded from the Episcopal Church and all their property became the property of their former diocese, which was left with 230-A in storage with Goulding & Wood. The organ was purchased by the Sedona Conservatory and moved there by the OCH in November 2015, where it will share quarters with the famed Estey from Claremont College. They will be restored independently and, in addition to their own rebuilt individual consoles, will be able to be played by a new 5-manual master console. What a project!
