Updated through online information from Thomas L. DeLay.
The Clarabella and Viola D' Amour mentioned in the spec are NOT prepared for. They are original. The Viola D' Amour is a bell gamba cut dead length. Tuning is accomplished via over-size ears. There is a preparation on the Great for a 4-rank Mixture that was never installed. The Trombone is a prep.
