    The original organ was built for another building, and was moved to the present
    edifice in the early 1960's. The original case, chests, mechanism, and some pipes
    were either sold or discarded.
    At the time of the move by Clele d'Autremont the organ had a new console, new
    chests, and a new Trumpet. It was 5 ranks, enclosed in the right-side chamber.
    It was dedicated in May, 1861.
    Stops marked with an asterisk (*) indicate new pipework at the time of the Bond
    work in 1983. The remaining pipework is original, and has been re-voiced and re-
    regulated. In some instances, original pipework has been altered to create new
    The Swell 4' & 2' Principal is made mostly from the original Great 8' Open
    Diapason. The Swell 2-2/3' & 1-1/3' Nazard is made from the original Great 8'
    Dulciana, re-scaled and re-voiced.
    The first 12 notes of the Great 8' Principal are original, while tenor C and
    above are new. 
    The Pedal 8' Principal borrows notes 1-12 from the Great 8' Principal, and the
    remainder from the 4' Choral Bass.
