Database Manager on June 01, 2015:

Identified through online information from Ron Yeater. -- Extensive tonal rebuild with several ranks of new pipes, as well as revoicing/rescaling of existing stops. New exposed Great chests in front of tone openings. This organ was probably re-installed in the new location but I don't know if more alterations were done at that time.
