Notes

  • Organ is in two cases flanking a window in the bay of the rear gallery. Console, case, windchests (all-electric expansion-chamber), and façade pipes (70% tin) are new, some interior pipes are recycled from a Moller "Double Artiste" but revoiced by Randall Dyer & Associates. While it is a unit organ, the manual choruses are straight other than extending the 15th from the octave on the Great. (Stephen Hall. July 28, 2019)
