Database Manager on January 30, 2016:

This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by Andrew Hagberg, based on personal knowledge of the organ.

The organ has been worked on by multiple people over the last 50 or so years. This rebuild saw enlargement and re-voicing of the manuals, and expanding the pedal to a 16-8 mechanical unit.
