Database Manager on May 23, 2017:

Identified through information from Keith S. Toth. -- This was the last organ to be designed by the late organbuilder Guy Thérien (1947-2001). All pipework was built before M. Thérien's untimely death. The organ was finished and installed by his firm under the direction of Jacques L'Italien and Alain Guilbault. Messrs. L'Italien and Guilbault voiced the organ in its original New York City apartment location.
