Database Manager on January 30, 2016:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ.

This work enlarged the organ from 4-registers and 4-ranks, to 7-registers, 24 stops (inc. chimes), and 10 ranks. The original 1952 8' Dulciana was rescaled, cut-down, de-bearded, and revoiced as a new Swell 1-1/3' Larigot. The added voices were the 8' Celeste, 8' Trompette, and III-IV Mixture.
