Database Manager on November 26, 2018:

Op. 818 was a combination of Op. 105 (1899) from St. Paul's Presbyterian and Op. 162 (1902) from St. Andrew's Presbyterian, with 32 ranks of Op. 162 becoming the North Organ and other stops in the Apse Organ; the church property was allocated for a subway station, so the sanctuary was purchased by the College St-Laurent and moved brick-by-brick to their property; the organ was rebuilt and relocated to the moved building.
