Database Manager on February 17, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from Douglas Adams. -- Bought from St-Mathias parish, Arvida QC in 1978. Main alteration: new casework to suit auditorium, with vertical separation of chests and keydesk increased by about 8 feet. Hall seats 1233, church seated 350. Narrow-scale pipework of thin material on a 0.75 hp blower. Organo pleno is easily masked by other instruments or singers. Organ major program discontinued by UVic School of Music in 2002, so organ now mainly used for convocation processionals.
