Database Manager on March 01, 2006:

On line update from Kenneth Lowenberg: In 1975 the organ received a complete cleaning by David Storey, technician. At this time we added three 32' digital pedal stops by Walker, replaced the original Pedal Musette 4' with a Trumpet 4' (from another Rieger organ), and reconfigured the Ruckpositiv from an M-shape case to an A-shape case, which necessitated replacing the Positif Principal 4' with a new Principal 4' (with much shorter feet). Previously, in 1996, a 32-level memory system by SSL was installed.
