Database Manager on March 22, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a rebuild and enlargement of the existing 1929 Reuter. A new Great principal chorus was added with 1-13 of the 8' Principal en facade. The Rohr Flote on the Great was also new. And the 4' Hohl Flote was new to this organ, but is a set of recycled pipes from a 1920s Kilgen. The Swell remained original except for the addition of an 8' Trichter Regal. And the Pedal remained virtually unchanged except for a wired 32' Resultant and a 16' Contra Fagotto as an extnsion of the Swell 8' Oboe. In 2004, a horizontal Trumpet was added to the Great, increasing the size of the instrument to 13 independent registers, 27 speaking stops (including chimes), 15 ranks, and 1071 pipes.
