Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Pipe additions and renovations were done in 1969 by the C.V. Barden Company. In 1987, Fabry, Inc. of Fox Lake, Illinois, re-leathered the reservoirs, added electric tremolo units, added solid-state expression systems, and converted the combination action, coupler relays, manual and pedal contacts, and chamber relays to solid-state. Improvements and additional renovations were also made in 1996 in conjunction with the remodeling and upgrading of the sanctuary and nave. Fabry & Sons, Inc. oversaw the installation of a new Great wind chest to accommodate the newly exposed principal chorus. A new Great Mixture was added to the exposed principal chorus, and the original Great Mixture was moved to the Swell division. A new Harmonic Trumpet (8Â’) was also added to the Choir division. At the same time, numerous ranks were duplicated to other manuals for convenience and the memory system was upgraded from a possible 24 settings to 192. The organ now [2003] includes 31 ranks totaling approximately 2200 pipes located in two pipe chambers. The four division (three manuals and pedal) console is still in use today. It is valued at approximately $350,000.
