Database Manager on April 11, 2012:

Identified through online information from Jack Umholtz. -- This organ was moved from a chancel location to rear balcony in the early 1970's. At this time, the Cornopean was swapped out for a Fagot, the Vox Humana was removed and a 4' Gemshorn was added on a new EP chest, and the stops were renamed in Germanic names and spellings, although no revoicing was done. More information to come once I can research that renovation.
