Notes

  • Identified through information in Casavant documents, courtesy of Simon Couture and Denis Blaine. (Database Manager. September 6, 2014)
  • Updated by Paul A. Walrath, who has heard or played the organ.

    Number of pipe ranks was determined by my looking at the stoplist. My count may be off if there is duplication that isn't indicated by the stop's name. (Stephen Hall. November 20, 2018)
