Jeff Scofield on July 24, 2020:

Casavant, Op. 2238, moved from previous installation to new building by the Knoch Organ Co. (representatives of Walcker Orgelbau, Germany). Various additions and tonal changes were made at the time, with subsequent minor tonal changes by Casavant Freres in 1971, 1972 and 1982.
