Notes

  • Identified through information from Jeff Scofield. -- When I played the organ in 1987, it was a magnificent English-style instrument in a live room. The strings were luscious, the flutes and other solo stops varied and beautifully voiced, the hooded Tuba division over the reredos was glorious -- and the full-length 32' Bombarde was magnificent. (James Cook. February 4, 2007)
  • Tonally altered by Wicks, with new console, in 1995. (James Cook. February 4, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. January 20, 2012)
