Database Manager on May 28, 2010:

Identified through on-line information from Jack Shaum. -- Addition of a Solo division to existing Casavant organ of 1966, following other modifications: Console is the Austin console from St. Alban's, Washington DC, added around 1986. When not moved to the center for recitals it is across the chancel from the organ chamber. A Trompette-en-Chamade by Jack Steinkampf was added about 1986. In addition to the Flute Harmonique addition in 1983, the Choir Krummhorn was replaced at the same time by an Austin clarinet and another manual reed--not sure which one--was also replaced with an Austin stop. Within the past few years, Walker Technical Company installed three digital 32-foot stops.
