Notes: The organ is installed in the rear gallery, originally with sheer curtains in front of the chamber a la St. Paul's Cathedral, Boston. Aeolian-Skinner added a 32' reed in 1967 as Op. 1306-A. Two resultants were added later, along with three stops by Cannarsa in 1968. An Austin console was added at the front of the church.
