Notes

  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Pedal 8' Bordun is taken from the 16' Subbass; however there are no extension pipes, so it only plays for 20 notes. The organ has four prepared-for stops - two each in the Swell and Pedal. Swell preps are III Scharf and 8' Oboe. Pedal preps are III Mixture and 16' Fagott. (Database Manager. May 15, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- I visited the organ last week and found that in 2005, the organ was substantially altered by Bob Walker. A new three-manual drawknob console was provided, and the organ was augmented with custom digital voices. All the original Casavant equipment remains - save for the console. (Database Manager. June 12, 2007)
  • Updated through information in Casavant documents, courtesy of Simon Couture and Denis Blaine. The tonal director was Lawrence Phelps. (Database Manager. July 23, 2015)
