Notes: In 1949, Aeolian-Skinner Op. A-549 provided for the addition of a 16' Quintaton to the Great, which replaced the Bourdon extended from the Pedal.  The Quintaton was also made playable in the Pedal, where it replaced the 16' Major Bass, which was disposed of.  At some time, the Choir Concert Flute and Echo Cor de Nuit exchanged places.  The sanctuary is a very impressive building easily seating around 2,000.  It has around a 70' ceiling and is around 120' wide at the transepts. Alas, the congregation, like some others along Wilshire, has dwindled hugely.  The Presbyterian congregation now worships in the chapel.  The sanctuary is now used by a Korean congregation.
