Database Manager on June 27, 2013:

An relocated organ. Identified by Matthew Dion, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This Organ is from Casavant Frères Ltée., built sometime in the 1940s. The organ is located in the choir loft. It is played by a small two manual console. The organ is totally contained in a box with a swell pedal to control it. It could pass as a small chancel instrument because it does not contain any reeds. It is a very nice instrument with very little problems. Just needs to be tuned.
