Database Manager on May 04, 2012:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Twenty-seven ranks prepared-for, as well as many pistons, couplers and the crescendo pedal that were installed but not yet activated; the organ was eventually enlarged to 3/34; replaced in 1989 by 3/40 Reuter Op. 2136, retaining 6 Möller ranks; the church has the most unusual ceiling - like a giant deep sky-blue air mattress that runs from the front wall to the back.
