Database Manager on July 23, 2018:

Identified through information from John Widman. In 1984, Cannarsa Organs renovated and enlarged the Möller organ (1917, Op. 2278), retaining 751 old pipes and adding 292 new. A new three-manual console was custom-built and featured a multi-memory solid state capture system. New windchests were built for the Swell, Choir, and Great divisions of the organ. A new Maas-Rowe Symphonic Carillon, consisting of 25 minor and 25 major English bells, was also installed at this time. The electronic carillon can be heard from speakers in the sanctuary and outside from the bell tower. A year later, the Zimbelstern was added.
