    NOTES
    This is an “Artiste” model. It is housed in a free-standing case in the rear gallery on
    the left side and forward, and the console on the right at the gallery rail. The console
    is positioned so that the organist faces across the gallery with the altar to their left.
    
    There is evidence which suggests that the case was once located elsewhere, perhaps at the
    center of the rear gallery and up against the wall.
