Jeff Scofield on April 19, 2021:

Prepared-for stops for the Positiv division were added by Casavant in 1972; prepared-for stops for the Great and Pedal divisions were added by Casavant in 1974; also at that time a III Zimbel at 1/2' replaced the one at 1/4'. At some point, someone added a third manual to the existing console, along with a third manual division; the organ case looks like was altered at that time.
