Database Manager on November 25, 2013:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by Rodney J. Weed, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- As part of this 1989 rebuild after the fire. Significant tonal changes were made. The IV Mixture on the Great that had been considered harsh was replaced. The II Quintenona on the Swell had the 8/9' rank of pipes removed and became a 1 1/3' Quint. The II Sequialtera on the Choir had the ranks separated becoming a 2 1/3' Nazard and a 1 3/5' Terz. The original 1981 organ was voiced in a more French style. This 1989 rebuild was totally revoiced in a very traditional manner and adjustments have been made balancing different registers. This 1989 version is a much more versatile instrument and very pleasantly fills the worship space with a wonderful blended sound with no sense of harshness about the sound.
