Updated through on-line information from John Gouwens. -- Organ was relocated by Fabry, Inc. around 1992. Revoicing was done in consultation with Dan Angerstein. Entire instrument was enclosed (each manual in its own box) until recent addition of exposed principal pipes. Console has many preparations for later additions. Organ was previously located at St. Augustin's RC Church in Chicago.
