Online update from Ray Cornils -- The organ was restored with alterations by the Andover Organ Company in 2003/04. They built a completely new key action, removed the Great to Great 4' coupler installed in 1985, added a Cornet II (12-19) to the Swell, combined the Sw 8' Oboe (TC) and 8' Bassoon (12 pipes) onto one stop knob, increased the scale of the Swell 4' Violina making it a 4' Principal, increasing the scale of 2' Flautina (which was of string scale and tone) to 2' Principal, increasing the scale of Pedal 8' Violoncello to 8' Violin Diapason, and restoring the Great/Pedal reversible combination pedal which had been taken out in 1969. Tremolo and Blowers Signal are now on stop knobs.
