Database Manager on September 02, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from Dan Herrscher. -- The instrument was originally built in 1981. In 2008 the last four ranks that the organ was designed to have were installed. Upon review of the stop list with the builder, this brings the total number of ranks up to 28 (there are two extended ranks in the pedal).
