Database Manager on November 23, 2011:

The organ has had a few changes since its original installation. At some point Reuter added some Pedal stops: 32' Resultant, 16' Posaune, 8' Trumpet, and III Mixture. Also, facade pipes were either added to the organ or pipes were moved from the chambers to create the facade. This happened some time after 1982.
