IV Manual Renovate Casavant Console
107 Stop Controls
27 Coupler Controls
101 Ranks (66 Pipes)
This renovation and additions to this beautiful Casavant Instrument has provide an expanded tonal palette. The overall additions provide both extension of the harmonic range of the instrument along with exceptional increase in the dynamic structure of the instrument. The experience and vision of the Minister of Music spearheaded this project and followed it through to its successful completion.
The console modificaitons provided for the 35 stop expansion of the instrument which included an all new Solo Division sharing the fourth manual. The solo division required the modificaiton of the kneepanel and toe bolsters to provide proper AGO placement for an additional expression shoe. This also allowed correction of relational dimensions between the manual and pedalboard which were brought about during a previous renovation. The console operates with a new Walker combination system and features 200 levels of memory.
