Database Manager on January 30, 2006:

Updated through online information from Nathan Smith. -- The instrument fell silent in the 1970s. The console was disconnected and moved to the side of the gallery where it is still visible from inside the Church. An electronic instrument currently resides in its place; the organ is otherwise installed as normal. The organ is a memorial instrument to Rosa Verde.
