Owen Lenzmeier on June 24, 2020:

I have provided the stoplist exactly as it was written on the pipeorganlist.org website, but I believe there may be some errors in it. Both this entry and the entry on the Pipe Organ List say that the instrument is 25 ranks, but the stoplist provided comes out to 24. This would be reduced even further to 23 if the Pedal 16' Bourdon turns out to be an extension of the Swell 8' Bourdon, but this is not made clear on the stoplist. I have heard this organ many times in person, but I have never played it. Anyone who is more familiar with the instrument than me is certainly welcome to fill in missing information.
