Updated through on-line information from H. Elton Rouse. -- I am an interested amateur who heard this organ just last week, at the official closing of the Reformed Church in Leeds. It was my first, and only time in the church, and the organ sounded just splendid. My great-great grandfather was a member of that church, and he must have heard this instrument many times.
