Joe O'Donnell on January 20, 2022:

The organ was substantially revised. Changes included a new three-manual terraced drawknob console and a completely new switching system (Syndyne 8400). Most of the Swell and Great Principal choruses are new and there are several additional ranks and extensions of existing ranks.
