Database Manager on August 01, 2009:

Updated through on-line information from Samuel Libra. -- The Hauptwerk (notated as Great on organ) Trompette stops were originally part of a seperate windchest controlled by electrical action. When the organ was removed from the Koren Chapel and moved to the music building, the 16' and 4' Trompette stops were removed. The 8' Trompette was moved to the main case "en chamade" and added to the mechanical action. According to the Luther college organ web page, the organ is 25 stops, 37 ranks rather than the 26 stops and 34 ranks described on the OHS page.
