Identified through online information from Philippe Beaudette. -- In November of 1986, the Administrative Board approved a $400,000 expansion and improvement project for the existing 1961 Möller organ, to be carried out by the M. P. Möller Company. (In 1962 the 32' Bourdon had been installed and three years later the 32' Posaune was added.) Exposed pipes were added in the sanctuary and a new four-manual console featured electro-pneumatic action and solid state combination action. The organ was enlarged to 73 stops, 105 ranks, and 5,869 pipes including the Trompette-en-Chamade located in the ceiling above the balcony.In 1995 a tonal revision project was begun with Daniel Angerstein of Grand Rapids, Michigan. This project was completed in 1999 with the addition of a new Trompette-en-Chamade.
