Notes

  • This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by James R.Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- A new Peterson solid state relay was added replacing original electro-pneumatic switching. Tonal changes were made using existing pipework. The Swell 8' Aeoline was removed and replaced with the Choir 8' Viole d'Orchestre to be tuned sharp as a Voix Celeste. The removed Choir 8' Viole d'Orchestre was replaced with a used Open Diapason from 4' C and up playing on the Great at 4' pitch; on the Choir and 4' & 2' pitches; and in the Pedal at 4' pitch.
