Identified through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- "The Stopt Diapason," February 1982, reports this not to be the original home of this instrument, but the original home is unknown, and also the date when it came to St. Peter Church. It is housed in a divided chancel chamber arrangement. "The sound is warm and rich, not muddy, which makes it a good vehicle for Romantic music." "A unique feature is the German tripper-style free combination system located on both sides of the roll-top console's inner panels, rather than above the centered stop tabs. The four pistons for each manual each operate their division's stops as well as the Pedal. There is also a coupler cancel. The Sforzando (with dial indicator) is engaged by a foot lever to the right of the two expression pedals and crescendo pedal. A similar lever hole missing the lever is to the left of the expression pedals, its original function not readily ascertainable. The compasses are 61-30 and there is a dial wind indicator. The organ has had two tonal changes: the 4' Octave was an 8' Gamba, and the 2' Block Flute was an 8' Tuba."
