Database Manager on January 04, 2008:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- When I first saw the organ some 17 years ago, an 8' Cornopean had already been substituted to an original rank on the Great. This was a memorial gift. In more recent years, an 8' Oboe was added to the organ - also as a memorial gift - utilizing the original Swell Unison Off stop tablet. Documented 12/28/07.
