Database Manager on October 14, 2009:

Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Spitz Flute and Flute Celeste were retained in the Casavant opus 2927 which replaced it. Other parts dispersed, but Daniel Lemieux gathered enough of the pipe work to use in a new instrument (2009), modeled after the Skinner that was placed in the rear gallery. (The Casavant is in the chancel.)
