               Key & Stop

The organ is an original installation. It is installed in a left-side
transept at the front of the room. The keydesk is attached and projecting
with a lid that lifts to form a music rack. Stops are a miniature Haskell
keyboard where pressing the white key actuates the stop, and pressing the
adjacent black key disengages it. The 3-sectional facade contains 25 gold-
painted pipes arranged: 5-15-5, and includes some of the basses of the
Great 8' Open Diapason.

The Swell 8' Salicional likely shares the bass of the 8' Stopped Diapason.
And the bass of the Great 8' Dulciana is either stopped wood or canistered
