    NOTES
    This organ was originally built for ______________________________ Church in
    _________________________, __.
    
    The organ was stored for a time in the Portland, Oregon shop of Rene Marceau where
    Frans Bosman did the instrument rebuild.
    
    The organ is installed in the rear gallery of the church. The free-standing case has
    an attached, projecting keydesk with a lid that lifts to form a music rack. The case
    front was altered and extended to fit the space requirements of its new home. The
    facade pipes were also re-stenciled. The 3-sectional façade has 25 pipes arranged:
    10 – 5 – 10. The Great 8' Open Diapason has its first __ pipes in the façade.
    
    The Great 2' Fifteenth was added on a jump slide on the front of the Great chest.
    
    Calvary Lutheran later disbanded and the organ was moved by Frans Bosman to St. John's
    Episcopal Church in Lodi, California without tonal or structural changes.
