  • Identified by Rae Bolton from information furnished by Casavant Frères, courtesy of Simon Couture. (Database Manager. November 23, 2009)
  • Updated through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. June 25, 2010)
  • Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- From photos taken in March 2020, it appears that the organ has had a solid state upgrade as there is a MIDI drawknob available in each division now, and an LED control panel is visible to the left of the coupler rail. However no tonal changes or additions are evident. (James Stettner. March 7, 2020)
