Database Manager on May 16, 2016:

Updated through online information from James Hopkins.
Some pipework from Austin op. 1752 was incorporated into this organ. While key action is mostly mechanical, the Grand-Choeur division is played via electric key action, and the Recit may be coupled to the Grand-Orgue and Grand-Choer divisions either mechanically or electronically (toggled by a button on the stop jamb). It must be set to couple electronically in order for the super- and sub- couplers to be used.
