Database Manager on November 15, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Seven divisions: Great, Swell, Choir, Positiv, Nave, Nave Pedal, Pedal. This is essentially a new organ created from the previous Casavant, Op. 2564, 1961. Much of the existing pipework was retained and rescaled, rebuilt, or placed in a different division. New ranks were added. A new, movable, solid state console was provided to replace the old, recessed, fixed position console. The Nave was placed in a stunning new case beneath the rose window. The case has a 13-sectional facade and also features a Trompette-en-Chamade.
