Database Manager on July 12, 2011:

Identified through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Organ is set in center chamber behind chancel wall with Swell above the Great, exposed Principal pipes. A sheer fabric panel hides the Swell shutters and open area above the console between the facade pipes. The facade also includes flat wood panels that appear to be pipes from a distance, but are actually there for visual balance.
