      Barry Norris, in Birmingham, AL, has a 200 rank organ in his home, and there is a man in Arizona (Phoenix, I think) who has a Midmer-Losh of 160-some ranks in his home. The Hammond Castle organ may have been the largest residence organ at one time, but I think it's been surpassed.</P>

        Evidently the console has been nuked, which makes me wonder how much has been done to get/keep the organ playing lately. There's a close-up shot of the console on the following site:

        http://frank.harvard.edu/~jason/summer2002/castle/

        Funny how the digital crap doesn't help much when 1,000's of leather pouches are bursting, and yet it always seems to be the first thing to happen.

          Sad but true.</P>


          I wonder who came up with the great idea ofadding all that solid state claptrap on it.</P>


          You'd think that one level of memory would be plenty, considering all the pistons that it has - and the likelyhood that it is not played very much (I'm just making assumptions about that though).</P>

            The Ernest M Skinner &amp; Son firm founded in 1935 in Methuen, Mass continued to be family -run till 1951 when during the manufacture of a V-manual job in New York State the company was unable to complete it owing to financial problems and so Carl Basset bought out the firm. He operated it I believe from Florida and then sold it when he retired</P>


            . When I read that the chests for the Washington Cathedral job in 1973-76 were made by Ernest M. Skinner CoI contacted the president Kim Boulton. He was located in New Hampshire and was very wealthy and sponsored many of Diane Bish's programs abroad.</P>


            He was contracted for additions to the Aeolian-Skinner at Church of the Epiphany in Washington DC. He mentioned to me that his firm was building a new knob console for Hammond Castle. Needless to say that deal fell through as did the firm. So the Austin console is still there.</P>
