Database Manager on January 30, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from Eric Fahner. -- The organ was a four-manual when the organ console was located in the balcony with the organ. When the console was relocated to the altar sometime in the 1970s, it was given a new three-manual console by Peragallo organ company of Paterson, New Jersey, and the first generation of electronic speaker pipes as the organist was having trouble hearing the organ correctly.
