    NOTES
    The organ is free-standing and encased with an attached, projecting keydesk.  
    The case is of fumed white oak, and the moldings are trimmed 
    in colors of black, blue, red, and 23 karat gilt. The manuals are of bone and grenadill. 
    The pedalboard is of burl maple and rosewood. The pipe shades are carved from sugar pine.
    The stopknobs and manual moldings are of ebony. The stop rods are of maple. Other woods 
    include black walnut for the reed blocks, and mahogany for the sliders. A thin strip of 
    black bog oak from northern Germany is used in the music rack.
    
    The upper case has folding doors which cover the pipes. The 5-sectional façade is arranged:
    6-26-5-26-6. The two central flats of 26 pipes are divided into upper and lower portions. 
    The upper flats contain 11 pipes each, and the lower flats contain 15 pipes each. Five of 
    the façade pipes are embossed.
    
    The Manual I 8' Præstant borrows its first five notes from the tenor octave of the Pedal 
    16' Subbass. It begins in the façade at bass FF (note 6). From c 37 to the top it is II-
    ranks. The entire façade is from the Præstant. The 8' Holpÿp, 3' Quinte, and 1-3/5' Tierce
    are all divided. When the stop is half-drawn, the stop shank is labeled `discant'. When 
    fully drawn, the stop shank is labeled `discant & bass'. The 4' Octave is also a divided 
    stop, but it acts in a manner opposite the other three divided stops. When the stop is 
    half-drawn, the stop shank is labeled `bass'. When fully drawn, the stop shank is labeled
    `bass & discant'. The Manual I 16' Bourdon borrows its bottom octave from the Pedal 16'
    Subbass. The first nine pipes of the Pedal 16' Subbass are outside the case. Pipes 1-14 
    are on their back on the floor beneath the hinged, wedge-shaped bellows. Pipes 5-9 stand
    on a tubed chest on the floor directly behind the case.
    
    The organ was played by Gustav Leonhardt at the 1974 National AGO Convention in Cleveland,
    OH before being installed in its home in Washington State.
