Gen. Can. ACTION: E-P & D-E unit VOICES: 5 STOPS: 31 RANKS: 5 PIPES: 353 NOTES This organ is installed in a chamber on the front, left side of the church behind an arch that separates the sanctuary from the chancel. The only chamber opening is into the chancel, so tonal egress into the sanctuary is poor and reflective only. As originally built, there were no pistons or toe studs. The Lucas combination action was added in 1979. A set of Maas amplified chimes is playable from its own keyboard. Sources: Balcom and Vaughan opus list; Eugene M. Nye compilation; JRS; extant organ
