The organ at Christ Episcopal Church in Little Rock, Arkansas was constructed by Nichols & Simpson, Inc., Organbuilders of Little Rock. The instrument replaces a 1953 Möller designed by Ernest White. The new instrument incorporates some of the Möller pipework, though in a radically altered form. The construction and voicing of the instrument required a period of one year and was completed in April, 1990.

The tonal design of the organ was influenced by the great French organs from the Romantic period, notably those of Cavaillé-Coll. The organ does not pretend to be an exact copy of anything; rather, it is eclectic in concept.

The outer shell of the movable console is oak; the interior is of burled walnut. The natural keys are of bone, and the sharps are of rosewood. The drawknobs were individually turned of rosewood with bone faces inset. The combination action has ninety-nine levels of memory and a four-level adjustable crescendo system. The windchests are pallet and slider with electric key action and pneumatic cylinder stop action. The wind pressure is 100mm for all stops except the Bombarde, for which the wind pressure is 152mm.

Those who contributed to the realization of the organ include:

C. Joseph Nichols (engineering, installation, tonal finishing)
Wayne E. Simpson III (design, voicing, installation, tonal finishing)
Robert Bartram (windchest construction, installation)
Woodunique (facade case work)
