Database Manager on April 20, 2017:

"To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Opus 120, the long-awaited Fernwerk division ("Far Away", or "Echo" division) was installed in the fall of 2013. Utilizing pipes from a 100-year-old Kuhn instrument, the Fernwerk is placed high up in the North Transept of the Cathedral and is playable from either of the main organ's two consoles via fiber-optic cable."
