Database Manager on November 24, 2017:

Updated by David Smit, who has heard or played the organ. In addition David Smit gave this as a source of information: I rescued the organ after a disasterous removal on the sale of the building.
A particularly finely voiced instrument, that sounded robust in the church space.
