Updated by William M. Worden, who has heard or played the organ.
The Kney has swell shades at both the front and the back of the swell box. The organ is slightly off-center in the gallery; the trackers run under the gallery floor and when installation was begun and the floor was opened up to provide runs for the trackers it was discovered that there was a very large reinforced concrete beam dead center under the stepped floor of the gallery. The organ had to be moved slightly to one side so the trackers would pass next to that beam. As originally planned, the organ was to have been placed in the basement well of this unusual church, against the liturgical east wall of the well, where it would presumably speak into both the main floor and the balcony. The 1930 Kilgen formerly in the chambers at either side of the chancel has been gone from about the time that the Kney was installed. New Syndyne combination action c. 2013 by Renaissance Pipe Organ, Ann Arbor.
