Database Manager on December 26, 2005:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is free-standing and encased in the rear gallery. The main case of red oak houses the Great and Pedal. The Ruckpositiv, also of red oak, is on the gallery rail. The main case has its façade from the first 48 pipes of the Great 8' Praestant of hammered, polished tin. The Ruckpositiv case has its facade from the first 47 pipes of the 4' Praestant which are of flamed copper. When originally built, the Great 2-2/3' Nazard, Ruckpositiv 8' Schalmei, and Pedal 16' Trombone were all prepared-for, but have since been installed.
