Updated by John Igoe, who has heard or played the organ.
Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- While the organ was renovated, every attempt was to made to retain all original materials and mechanicals --minimal revoicing was done. The organ is superbly maintained and has been played several times a week every day since 1879.
Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- While the swell and choir are straight tracker, the great and any great couplers (swell-to-great, choir-to-great, great unison off) work through the Barker machine, and they are controlled by large thumb pistons above the great. The lower keyboard is labeled as "SOLO" even though it is more functionally a "choir" division.
