NOTES SUPPLIED BY OTHERS: Note from Roy Redman: "Temple Sinai just received a new console (based on an original EM skinner console shell) and solid state relay from us, our opus 84. The lost 13 note
Shofar was replaced with one of 49 pipes. Other windchests and pipework
remain completely original. We have also completely releathered and rewired
the organ in recent years."
