Notes

  • Damaged 1980; Restored Andover 1987. (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Before the Andover renovation in 1987, the organ had already been altered. The Great 8' reed had been replaced with an 8' Dulciana. The Swell 8' Open Diapason had been rescaled by one note. The Swell 2' register had in its place the 2-2/3' component from the II Cornet - making the II Cornet draw only its own 2' register. The two foot trundle combinations had been removed. And the original 18-note pedalboard had been replaced by a 32-note pedalboard and the pedal action electrified. The two unenclosed Swell bass stops had been electrified, and the 4' slider was missing. Source: Andover Organ Co. files. (Database Manager. September 13, 2008)
