Notes

  • Ventil chests and winding system restored by Columbia Organ Works, Inc. 1986-1990. Reeds refurbished. Installed top octave of Swell Cornet III which had not been installed in the original installation; pipes were found wrapped in brown paper under the chest during restoration. The Choir division is located in the gallery; the Solo and Solo Pedal are enclosed within the Choir for double expression; in 1950 the Great was enclosed by Wilfred Lavallée, but the shades were later removed; Columbia Organ Works added 3 stops (upperwork) to the Great and Swell and rebuilt the console ca. 2004. The organ at Covenant UMC is currently maintained by SDG Pipe Organs, Millersville, PA. Significant work has been done to remedy problems associated with failing leather especially in the high pressure division. (Jeff Scofield. October 28, 2019)
