This specification is derived only from the surviving Möller layout drawings (now in the files of Schantz Organ Company); other borrows not apparent from these drawings probably existed. 2. The organ was designed by Mr. Prower Symons “especially to accompany women’s and children’s voices,” according to an old pamphlet about the chapel. 3. The organ was installed in two transept chambers. In the left (behind Möller’s non-speaking quartersawn oak façade of 60 pipes) stood the Great, Swell, and Choir arranged on two levels. The right chamber (behind a wood grille) is limited to the second floor level; it contained the Ancillary organ and the two Pedal 16’s installed horizontally. 4. This instrument was removed by Julian Bulley of Toledo Pipe Organ Company, Dayton, Ohio in 1976 or 1977. 5. Schantz Organ Company replaced this organ in 1977 with a III/28, its #1449, with the 1929 Möller façade remaining. Schantz also retained the seven largest pipes of the 16’ Open Diapason and capped them for use as the 32’ Untersatz #6-12. 6. The chapel was designed by Ralph Adams Cram and was dedicated on St. Barnabus' Day, June 11, 1929. [Received from ERIC J. GASTIER 2011-08-14.]
