Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the cleaning of the organ with three ranks of pipes replaced. It also included the purchase of a new three—manual console from Reuter, replacing the original console which was literally falling apart at the time. In 1973 three new ranks of pipes, a mixture and a Zimbelstern were added by Mr. Geisler. These projects increased the number of stops to 23. (Database Manager. July 10, 2010)
