Database Manager on September 15, 2012:

Updated through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- Ogasapian, 1977, reports "The instrument was housed in a five-section, free-standing case and had a projecting console: quite uncommon for the period. The tone was described by Boadway: ". . . quite rich, not too bright, but very pleasing; the acoustics of the building are excellent. . . . The chorus is quite silvery, and the Double Open is a bit too foundational, but adds greatly to the full organ."
