Updated thru online information from James R. Stettner. -- According to John Gouwens (present organist) before 1975 the Trompette en Chamade was added by Moller Reps Burger & Shafer of Ohio. Then ca. 1978 Fabry, Inc. of Antioch, Illinois added a Gemshorn Celeste II to the Great, but installed inside the swellbox.
