Database Manager on December 30, 2019:

To build this instrument, Casavant used the tubular action, the pipework and the console of their opus 136, installed in 1901, in the chapel of the Sisters Jésus-Marie, in Sillery. In 1955, Odilon Jacques rebuilt the instrument, electrified the action and used the unified system. In 1993, the instrument was replaced with opus 1649 built in 1940 by Casavant Frères and installed, originally, in the De La Salle Academy in Trois-Rivières,
