Database Manager on October 20, 2019:

In 1982 an 8' Trompette-en Chamade was added speaking from the front of the sanctuary. The pipework was replaced for this stop in 2015. In 1985 an enclosed 23 rank antiphonal was added in the rear of the sanctuary using old pipework of unknown origin on pitman chests. The original console was adapted to accommodate the new stops. In 1995 three Walker electronic 32's and one 16' Principal stops were added to the pedal.(These are the only electronic stops currently on the organ.) In 1998 the carpet was removed from the sanctuary and replaced largely by hardwood floors. In 2003 a used 1982 Austin draw knob console was purchased and rebuilt to replace the original 1963 Austin tab console. This console utilizes Peterson electronics which includes MIDI and 99 memories for 20 generals and 8 divisional pistons for each manual as well as 4 coupler pistons, reeds off, 16' off, all swells to swell etc. Each division has Austin style division cancels. The replacement 1982 drawknob console came from First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia.
