Database Manager on January 10, 2013:

Updated through online information from Rodney J, Weed. -- The information here is from a visit to the Church on January 6, 2013. This little organ has a wonderfully smooth Tracker action. It is very well voiced for the size of the Church and quite beautiful to look at. Both the mixture and sesquialtera are half draw stops meaning only one rank will sound when stop knob is drawn half way and when pulled all the way out all ranks of the stop will sound. The listing of the sesquialtera drawknob as I-III has added a bit of confusion for me as to whether the organ is 14 or 15 ranks. I usually think of a sesquialtera as a II rank stop of 2 2/3' and 1 3/5' pitches. If this organ actually has 3 ranks with this stop then the organ is 15 ranks. One feature I have not seen before is a rotating knob just left of the left stop jam that will adjust the tremolo. The keydesk is not flush with the case but extends out of the case which is not common to many trackers that I have seen.
