  • Renovated by Casavant in 1962, with the addition of a Trumpet on the Great in place of the 2' Super Octave; a new 3-manual console was built by Casavant and installed in 1991 by Alan T. Jackson, with preparations for additions; however, the church website now shows what looks like a Rodgers console. (Jeff Scofield. January 7, 2020)
