Notes: In 1924, Skinner built a large four-manual console to control the existing Hutchings-Votey in the gallery and the Roosevelt in the chancel. In 1926, Skinner installed a new gallery organ, shown above. In 1956, Aeolian-Skinner installed a very compact three-manual master console in the chancel – at the opposite end of the spectrum from the huge 1924 console. Aeolian-Skinner installed a new chancel organ in 1963.
