Notes

  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the final phase of additions to the existing 1968 Casavant. The Great 2' Flachflöte and the Swell 2' Oktav were swapped. The Great 4' Spitzflöte and 8' Trompete were added. A 4' Principal was added to the Swell on the former 4'Koppelflöte toeboard. The 4' Koppelflöte was moved to a new, elevated chest. 12 capped metal pipes were added on a new chest to complete the compass of the Pedal 8' Bordun. And a new 16' Bombarde / 8' Trompette unit were added to the Pedal in-place of the originally planned III Mixtur 2' and half-length 16' Fagott. (Database Manager. January 1, 2006)

    NOTES
    When the organ was originally installed, there were nearly as many prepared-for
    stops as there were installed stops. The following stops were prepared-for:
    
    Great: 8' Erzähler, 4' Spitz Flöte and 8' Trompete
    Swell: 8' Salizional, Swell 8' Vox Coelestis, III Zimbel, and 8' Krummhorn
    Pedal: 16' Prinzipal, III Mixture, 16' Fagott
    
    Four of the prepared-for stops were installed by Casavant in 1970. These were the:
    
    Great: 8' Erzähler
    Swell: 8' Salizional, Swell 8' Vox Coelestis, and 8' Krummhorn
    
    The Pedal 8' Bordun was from the 16' Subbass, however, since there were no pipes
    provided for an extension – it only played for 20 notes. The chimes were retained
    from the previous 1948 M.P. Möller installed at the previous edifice at 24th & Colby.
    
    A plaque adjacent to the builder's nameplate on the console reads:
    
                          Installation By
                         Clele d'Autremont
              District Representative Casavant Freres
                         Portland,  Oregon
    
    The Great 8' Prinzipal has notes 1-32 en façade as does the entire Pedal 8' Prinzipal.
    
    In 1991, further additions and tonal revisions were made by Balcom and Vaughan of
    Seattle, Washington to complete the organ. The two manual 2' stops were swapped and
    the previous Swell 2' Prinzipal renamed Oktav. The 4' Spitz Flöte and 8' Trompete were
    added to the Great. On the Swell, a 4' Principal not originally planned-for was substi-
    tuted for the intended III Zimbel. It is installed on the original 4' Koppel Flöte toe-
    board, and the Koppel Flöte has been moved to an added, elevated chest mounted to the
    rear wall of the swellbox. On the Pedal, the originally-intended III Mixtur and 16'
    Fagott were omitted in favor of a 16' Bombarde/8' Trompette unit of 44 pipes. The 61
    pipes of the 8' Trompete were added on a new chest at the end of the original Casavant
    Great chest bearer. The 12 pipes of the 16' Bombarde extension are installed on the
    floor of the chamber beneath the Swell. The full-length, un-mitred resonators rise-up
    behind the façade and beside the Swell enclosure. Also, the 12-pipe extension of the
    16' Subbass was added. It is made of new capped metal pipes on a new chest and also
    installed in the chamber beneath the Swell. All added pipework was acquired from
    Jacques Stinkens in Zeist, Holland.
