Database Manager on July 06, 2008:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Wind supplied by by four wedge-bellows with pumping motors - no blower. Case patterned after 18th cent. cases by Hendrik Niehoff. Great chorus derived from Niehoff's Blockwerk concept. Ruckpositiv and Brustwerk are Schnitger-style. Oberwerk Renaissance-style 8' Trompet influenced by early French and Spanish reeds. Two tremulants: a Dom Bedos "tremblant doux" to the Ruckpositiv; and a Schnitger-type tremulant to the entire organ.
