Database Manager on December 06, 2016:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by Stephen Hall, using information from this web site: http://www.2pc.org/worship/our-sanctuary/pipe-organ/.
As part of the sanctuary renovation, the original organ was reconfigured to bring the sound out into the sanctuary by a direct route rather than a 90 degree turn as was required by the placement of the Swell, Choir, and Pedal divisions in the original configuration. Nine ranks were added to the original 87 bringing the present total to 96.
