Database Manager on January 11, 2009:

Updated through on-line information from Cullie Mowers. -- The Pedal Violoncello (30 notes), although not included in the Database stoplist, appears to be original; the two unit chests are of the same design and construction as those of the other ranks, and all of the pipes are inscribed with the proper opus number. [Editor's Note: The Violoncello has been added to the stoplist, which is accessible under the original Felgemaker entry.]

Database Manager on September 30, 2008:

Identified through information posted to PIPORG-L by Cullie Mowers September 2008: Two-manual Felgemaker installed with a three-manual console from a ca. 1907 Hutchings-Votey; still only two manual divisions, with one useless manual. The entire 35-pipe all-speaking facade, noted in my earlier post, was installed facing into a plywood wall inside the gallery organ chamber, with odd partitions and cobbled-up swell shade arrangements for both manual divisions. The H-V console has an entire manual and about 37 stop and coupler controls which are useless with the appended 2m Felgemaker. The Felgemaker pipes are (as would be expected) beautifully made, voiced and regulated. The various strings (about 1/3 of the organ) are nicely contrasted; the hefty Pedal Violoncello is remarkably useful. The Swell 4' flute is lovely - all wood, and harmonic from middle c.
