Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This is an essentially new organ that utilizes a very limited portion of the previous organ. The existing console was retained and refinished, but with a new stop rail. New chests were provided. The Great 8' Kleine Erzähler and Erzähler Celeste are enclosed with the Swell pipes.
