Notes & Reviews:
The J.W. Walker organ of 1912 is one of the few from this builder in that time frame that still sounds as it did upon creation. The organ hasn't been modified (with the exception of tune-ups) since it's build. Typical of organs of this period, the diapason chorus is full of fundamental tone and has a brilliant top end and the reeds add power without stealing the show.
