Known from a descriptive report of the dedication of the organ in Emporium, Pennsylvania. The Cameron County Press, February 1, 1906, p. 1. From the article, which gives the best approximation of the stoplist: "First are the strong and prevading Diapasons and Bourdons, the fundamental stops and foundatio of the volume of tone. Nest aer the Flute tunes [sic], then the String tones and the reed tones, these stops being voiced in close imitation of teh Orchestral instruments from which they are named. Besides these there are the soft Dulciana and teh very soft Aeoline stops which must be heard to be appreciated. Another stop seldom heard in none but the largest organs is the Vox Humana, a reed stop of peculiare construction and artistically voiced in close imitation of the pure human voice. Another stop is the loud Trumpet, a reed stop, a powerful [sic] toned stop in imitation of the hand Trumpet. Another of the reed stops is the Orchestral Oboe, a softer reed stop of a plaintive, mellow tone."We received the most recent update for this note from Paul R. Marchesano on November 02, 2020.
