Jeff Scofield on January 12, 2021:

Around 1999 Fischer Pipe Organs renovated the console and added a bass digital stops and two Flute Celestes; as part of a major cathedral restoration project, the entire organ was removed in 2020 and returned to the Casavant factory for cleaning and return to as-new condition, including console rebuilding.
