Database Manager on August 01, 2009:

Updated through online information from Charles Kennedy. -- Certainly it was a curiosity that the Swell contained one 8' reed and two 4' reeds, but this was actually the case. My recollection of a the stoplist as published in The Diapason is that it is listed correctly as a 4'. The clarification that I mention has to do with the Great Mixture. It is listed as it appeared on the console, as 4 ranks, but in fact was only two ranks, 1-1/3' + 1', straight to the top, without any break except for the top octave. It only spoke those two pitches and did not draw the 2-2/3' and 2'.
