Database Manager on July 14, 2018:

The organ was originally installed in 1967 by Casavant. This work by Buck was an extensive rebuild and expansion of the instrument, including the addition of an Antiphonal division and moving the Positiv to the balcony rail. Ranks of pipes and digital stops were both added to the instrument.
