    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
    As I recall, the Double Open Diapason 16 on the Great also plays in the pedal as a Prestant 16, or 
    else the basses are common. The Great with Double Open Diapason and Double Stopped Diapason at 16, 
    then Principal and Bourdon 8, a Double Tierce and a Grosse Fourniture, and a Doublet 2 tossed in.   
    All topped off with a Trumpet  and Voix Humaine 8!
    
    The Positive (with an E on the end) has French nomenclature, a Prestant 4, Quarte de Nasard and 
    Larigot, another "Doublet", and a Cromorne;  but wait..... a Sesquialtera!
    
    RECIT is a short compass Cornet that didn't get a knob!   Just plays all the time.   But when you 
    think about it, not much point in turning on and off the only stop that plays on that keyboard.
    
    There is a General Tremulant (Tremblant Doux) for the entire organ, although I don't remember which 
    language made it to the knob!
    
    PEDAL (without an E) has a Prestant with two Flutes, and to complete the French theme a Night Horn, 
    Bassoon and a Trumpet!
    
    The organ is tuned to Kirnberger III and the room is glorious.  It has a very interesting suspended 
    Positive, cantilevered over the console.
