Notes

  • Identified from the Reuter Opus List, provided by Chris Leaver, Reuter Organ Co., November, 2005. (Database Manager. November 24, 2005)
  • Updated through on-line information from John Dill. -- In 1997 the console was replaced with a new one, by Reuter, as well as a new SSL Relay and Control System. The new console contains many "dead" stops for future additions and uses French nomenclature instead of the original "American". In the past few years the 4' Clarion in the Swell was removed and a 2 2/3 Harmonic Twelfth Flute was put in its place. The Pedal Reed was re-voiced from 4" of wind pressure to 6" and increased from 56 notes to 85 and now plays as the Great Reed Chorus. The Solo wind pressure was increased from 6" to 7". No alterations in the Great or Choir have been made. (Database Manager. October 17, 2010)
