Database Manager on June 25, 2013:

Updated through online information from Matthew Dion. -- This organ is a rebuild of a Hook and Hastings organ from the 1930s. There are basically two organs included into this instrument. The Main Organ (or lager organ) is located in the back of the room. There is another chancel organ in the front left of the room. The Organ console is at the left corner of the room and both organs (main & chancel) are played by a console located in front of the chancel instrument. The organ is in good condition. There are a few minor problems as well as a tuning issue and a swell box problem. The Swell box shutters open and close by themselves in the main organ. Otherwise a great instrument! This instrument is maintained by Lemieux & Associates Pipe Organ Company.
