Terry Byrd Eason on February 10, 2021:

Modifications by John Dower in 2000 included adding a multi-level combination action, all new stop knobs and motors to accommodate the original stops and the added 12 digital stops voiced by Daniel Angerstein, adding on an electropneumatic chest a high pressure (15" wind) hooded 8' Trompette de Fete built by Rogers of England and voiced by Daniel Angerstein, and electrification of manual to manual couplers to lessen weight of mechanical key action when coupled.
