    NOTES
    The organ is installed across a full-width ledge across the back wall above the
    choir loft. All pipework is exposed and non-expressive. The Manual II 4' Rohr
    Schalmei was added in 1993 and utilized the Manual II Tremolo drawknob. That
    function has been moved to a reversible button. The Manual II 1-1/3' Larigot
    is an extension of the 4' Nachthorn, and the top 7 notes repeat. The Manual I,
    II Mixture is an independent quint rank played with the 2' Flach Flöte.
