Of these, 24 are speaking pipes of the 8' Open Diapason Bass. At present (1/5/06) the 4' Flute Bass has a replacement label that reads simply "Dolce". Combinations are achieved by fixed Piano and Forte foot trundles. The facade pipes were painted white with gold and red trim at the time of the Bond restoration.
