Database Manager on March 22, 2018:

The organ and choir are located on the same level as the congregation, at the rear of the rather tall A-frame nave. A 28 ft. tall case stands as an arch over the aisle inside the door of the church. Pipes of all three divisions are placed near the ceiling for optimal sound propagation. The façade includes pipes of the Pedal Prinzipal and Choralbass, the Hauptwerk Prinzipal, and the harmonic-length pipes of the Traverseflöte in the Oberwerk. No swellbox. The Hauptwerk and Pedal are located at the impost level. The generously scaled flute ensemble of the Oberwerk enjoys a privileged position near the peak of the room. Principal-based Hauptwerk. The case uses multi-hued woods in its frames, panels, and moldings and includes hand carved pipe shades.
