Database Manager on March 05, 2007:

Identified through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The main organ is located primarily in chambers to each side of the choir, with the chamade and a few other stops functionally exposed below and framing the chancel window. The Gallery organ is divided on each side of the gallery window. The console of the church's previous Möller serves as the gallery console; it can also play the main organ.
