After so many changes by so many builders, when it became evident the organ needed to be releathered around 2000, every company contacted concluded the Cathedral needed to "start over" with new chests, layout and and wiring. Foley-Baker found a number of Welte ranks in the church tower that had been discarded by Moller. They were repaired and incorporated in the new organ. Main chests are Blackinton style electropneumatic slider chests, containing very little leather compared to the typical pitman chest. These chests hold the pipes more efficiently, allowing for more freedom of access. There was not enough money to incorporate the gallery console or anything more of the Antiphonal than the unit Principal and a pedal 16'. The Schantz console was adapted for the stoplist changes. A few years after the rebuild, Grandall & Engen, curators, cleaned the Positiv, regulated the pipes, and moved the blower down from the ceiling where it can be more easily oiled.
