Received via e-mail from Peter Gonciarz: --
The organ at St. Stanislaus is a very special and unique organ in and of itself, as it was a very large 1893 Johnson and Son organ, that had an eight-rank pedal division, which in included a metal 8' Octave (unheard of in and of itself for 1893 America). Now the latest rebuild brings the organ back tonally to everything it had back then and more. In the 1950s Tellers removed more than half of the independent pedal ranks and unified all the 16s to make up for the other stops. Now that the independent ranks are back, the organ has one of the most powerful and heavy pedal divisions in the city.
