Notes: This organ replaced Skinner Op. 843, a 3/31, that was moved to the Methodist Church of Damascus, MD. The installation of Op. 1374 was the final step of a building program that saw the doubling of the length of the nave toward the front. The main organ is located in three shallow (five foot depth) bays located to the left of the chancel, including the Trompette en Chamade, which speaks toward the opposite side of the chancel. The Positiv and Positiv Pedal are located in the original organ chambers halfway back down the newly lengthened nave. The organ was rebuilt by Cannarsa in 1981.
