Database Manager on April 02, 2011:

Identified through on-line information from Kevin Neel. -- Original organ was 2 manuals and pedal. New organ in new sanctuary has additional "Solo" manual of four stops and three ranks (manual order from bottom: Solo, Great, Swell). Original core stoplist remains the same, mostly unaltered, however original 16' Contrebasse was lost over time and new rank makes up façade. Upperwork was added to each division including 2' Super Octave and III Mixture on Great; 2 2/3' Nazard, 1 3/5' Tierce, and 1 1/3' Larigot on Swell. Original Aeoline on Swell was replaced with 4' Prestant. 16'-8' Trumpet unit added to Great, 16' Fagot extension of Oboe added to Swell, and 8' Trumpet added to Swell. Zimbelstern retained from previous unknown organ in old sanctuary and relocated to the enclosed Solo division. 8' Gedackt prepared on the Great (for possible façade purposes in center chamber).
