The exposed Great is cantilevered over the choir seats. The Swell is located directly behind the Great, and the Pedal is divided on either side of the swellbox. The console was a used, refurbished Frazee console provided by Aeolian-Skinner. It was placed on the left side of the chancel with the organist facing the pipes/chamber across the chancel - the congregation to the right. The original dedication recital was played by David P. Dahl. The tonal changes were as follows: In the Great, the 1-1/3' Rohr Nasat was replaced by the Swell II Sesquialtera. In the Swell, the original 4' Gemshorn was replaced with a new 4' Koppel Flöte, and the original 8' Flauto Dolce was replaced with a new 8' Rohr Flöte. The Great 1-1/3' Rohr Nasat replaced the II Sesquialtera, and the 2' Principal was added on a new chest. The Pedal remained unaltered as did the couplers, finger pistons, toe studs, and pedal movements. The re-dedication concert was played by William F. Clausen, Jr. Sources: E.M.
