Database Manager on November 04, 2006:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is recessed into a chamber on the front/right side of the room where the sanctuary narrows and becomes the chancel. The façade contains 33 gold pipes in an arched fence. The first 18 notes of the Great 8' Open Diapason are contained therein. All remaining pipes are ornamental dummies. The Great 8' Dulciana borrows its bottom octave from the 8' Melodia. The Swell 8' Salicional borrows its bottom octave from the 8' Stopped Diapason. The Piano and Forte foot levers affect both the Swell and Great simultaneously. The Forte includes the Pedal. The original double-rise reservoir has been removed and replaced by a single regulator - which renders the wind unstable when full organ with octave couplers is used.
