Database Manager on October 18, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a project of refurbishing and tonal changes. The Great and Pedal remained unchanged. The Swell had 4 stops altered. The 8' Aeoline, 4' Violina, 4' Flute, and 2' register were replaced with an 8' Celeste, new 4' Flute, new 2' Fifteenth, and 1-1/3' Larigot. The Celeste and Larigot were made from two of the existing Steere ranks. Pitch remained at A=435.
