Updated through online information from Jim Thompson. -- Updates to my previous notes: The Johnson organ was ca 1921. The Flentrop has hand-operated doors for the Borstwerk as the "expression" capability. Also, the organ is located to the right side of the chancel area (facing the altar) (Epistle side, in Episcopal-speak). Calvin Hampton was the Organist/Choir Master during his senior year at Oberlin from 1959-1960. The "Stained Glass Zimbelstern" was his own device utilizing a small fan, an unused drawknob on the organ, and scrap stained glass from a parishioner's studio at the church (suspended from fine wire in front of the fan - brilliant).We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
