Notes

  • Originally installed as 2/14 Casavant Op. 1593 in 1938; renovated by Casavant in 1962, with a new Trumpet installed in place of the Super Octave on the Great; Casavant installed a new 3-manual console in 1991, with preparations for additions. However a photo on the church's website showed what looked like a Rodgers console in place. (Jeff Scofield. January 7, 2020)
