Sforzando (rev) ACTION: E-P VOICES: 29 STOPS: 38 RANKS: 31 PIPES: 2,076 NOTES This church was originally built as Lawrence Street Congregational Church. This congregation merged with Trinity Congregational at Trinity's building to form what is now  Hope Congregational Church. The old Lawrence Street church was sub- sequently sold to the Spanish Church of God (Iglesia de Dios Mission Board). The organ has not been in use since that time. More than half of both the Great 16' Open Diapason and 8' 1st Open Diapason comprise the pipe façade. The Great 8' Tuba has a bass, 12-pipe extension to provide for the Pedal 16' Trombone, however all 32 pipes needed for the Pedal register are on a separate chest in front of the Great chest at floor level. The resonators rise between the Great chest and he facade. The remaining 41 8' Tuba pipes are on the Great main chest. Both the Pedal 16' Open Diapason and 16' Bourdon are of wood, and line the two chamber walls perpendicular to one another. The Pedal 16' Dulciana is a 12-pipe extension of the Choir 8 Dulciana, however the Pedal extension is non-expressive on a separate chest at the side/end of the Choir enclosure, and at floor level.
