Database Manager on May 17, 2009:

Updated through online information from Doug Hezlep. -- The Casavant additions consisted of the 32' and 16' Pedal Principals and the first 18 notes of the Great 16' Violone (which replaced the original, damaged pipes). The organ was reinstalled in the new sanctuary, but was not rebuilt by Casavant; their local service rep at the time performed the work. A more accurate description is that the organ was re-installed with additions.
