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.
