Notes

  • Identified through online information from Joe O'Donnell. -- Updated by Joe O'Donnell, the builder.
    Thorough electrical upgrade and addition of a Great 8' Principal. In conjunction with a chancel remodel the console was removed from the church, refinished and converted to all-electric action via a solid-state control system including multiple combination action memory levels, transposer and record/playback. The prepared-for Positiv division was eliminated and the divisional stop tabs rearranged to a more standard order. Some original preparations are still included on the stoprail. The bottom 21 notes of the Great Principal stand on new windchests; the remaining pipes employ the actions on the Great chest intended for the Fourniture III. (Steven E. Lawson. May 3, 2017)
