Newcastle, Maine St. Andrew's Episcopal 1888 Hutchings Stoplist Great -- Open Diapason 8 Melodia 8 Dolcissima 8 Octave 4 Flute d'Amour 4 Twelfth 2-2/3 Fifteenth 2 Trumpet 8 Swell -- Bourdon Treble(*) 16 Open Diapason 8 Salicional 8 Stop'd Diapason 8 Flute Harmonique 4 Violina 4 Flautino 2 Oboe 8 (*) I don't know what this stop name is supposed to mean. It's a substantial 16' Bourdon that runs right through the compass. Does not appear to share pipes with the Pedal 16. Pedal -- Bourdon 16 Couplers: Sw -> Gt Sw -> Ped Gt -> Ped The manuals couple through -- i.e. if you have Gt->Ped and Sw->Gt you effectively have Sw->Ped too. Mechanisms, operated by foot pedals: Sw->Gt superoctave (hitchdown) Gt->Ped (reversible) Tremulant (whole instrument) -- hitchdown Combinations (foot pedals, L to R) I -- Retires all engaged Sw stops except Stop'd Diapason and Flute Harmonique II -- Enagages all Sw stops III -- Retires all engaged Gt stops except Melodia and Flute d'Amour IV -- Engages Gt Open 8, Melodia, Octave, Flute d'Amour, Twelfth, and Fifteenth. It's quite a splendid assertive instrument in a small but nice live space. [Received on line from Michael J. Smith, August 11, 2008]
