Database Manager on August 04, 2019:

This is a new home for an organ that was altered when it was moved from another location.
Identified by William Dunklin, who has heard or played the organ.
The original installation included 2 free standing cases, one for the Great, one for the Swell, Pedal divided between the two. An exposed Positiv was located in the center. In this installation, the cases are again separated, though here by the opening to the church's baptistery. The former exposed Positiv forms the basis of an enlarged Choir Division located in the church's existing single organ chamber. Some Wicks ranks predating 1982 were retained for the Choir division. The Casavant console was retained and rebuilt using digital switching and combination action.
