If you are curious about the fate of the two displaced Aeolian-Skinner organs, other performances can be heard in archived programs from Ford Auditorium (#8820 & #9531) and the Cathedral of Christ the King in its original location (#1248) and in its new home, St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Franklin, TN (#1447).  You also can enjoy the youthful Jonathan Biggers as I recorded him at National Presbyterian Church in 1982 (#8437).
