Chancel and Positif pipes are in wooden casework built by our firm, with architectural design assistance from James R. Wooten, beneath the round window behind the choir singers.  Chancel Montre pipes of aluminum and 70% tin form the front of the Chancel division.  Similar pipes of the Pedal Octave form the front of the Positif division. 

The organ was built in conjunction with a general renovation project during which the acoustics for congregational and choral singing were improved by the replacement of carpet and other absorbent surfaces with firm materials.
