Updated by Tom McNeil, who has heard or played the organ. In addition Tom McNeil gave this as a source of information: I am a piano restoration specialist, and also a low brass player. I’ve performed with this organ a half a dozen times. I’m reporting that this organ was apparently designed for about A=435 Hz, and sometimes plays a bit below that, e.g., 434 Easter 2019.
