Database Manager on May 25, 2009:

Identified through information from Grant Chapman: -- Addition of 16' Violone to the Pedal of highly altered Möller organ. [This was added to the existing four-manual console of 1920, which had originally controlled only 57 (not 230) ranks of pipes. Seven additional ranks were to be added in 1947, before a new four-manual console was built and installed in 1950.]
