Database Manager on February 12, 2012:

Updated through online information from steve bournias. -- 28 rks of the 1900 opus 37 were retained in 1960. In 1936 the reeds were revoiced by Austin. The prep stops in the Antiphonal Swell were mostly correct except the 2 strings. Austin did not follow the original plan of 1960 and supply in 1996 a 50 scale viola and comparable celeste but instead sent some VDOs.
