Notes

  • Status Note: There 1994 (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through on-line information from Charles Hoilman. -- I recently visited the campus (Apr. 8-9, 2011) and had an opportunity to play this instrument. It seems to be in good repair (one dent in the leftmost 16' Prestant pipe); voicing and tuning is good and everything worked; all stops sounded good individually and in combination. Regarding the number of stops, four stops are shared between the Great and the Pedal, and two stops are in preparation (see the stoplist for details). (Database Manager. April 14, 2011)
