Switch to turn off third-sounding rank of Choir Terzzimbel.

Two blower switches.  East blower for Swell and Great.  West blower for Choir and Pedal.  Console operates when either blower is turned on.

The Choir pipes located in the chancel serve the function of a Positif.  They are affected by the Choir couplers and Tremulant.

Great Harmonic Flute, Great Trumpet, and Pedal Trombone pipes are in the Choir chamber.

Solo Trumpet on Swell piston allows Solo Trumpet to be played from Swell keys, but it does not couple to other keyboards.  The piston also silences Swell voices on that keyboard but allows them to continue sounding on other keyboards via couplers.

3,311 pipes arranged in 62 ranks (sets) forming 44 voices

Nave Shutters toggle switch.  “Off” means blades toward nave are closed all the time, which is useful when accompanying singers.  “On” means they are operated by the shoes and is the normal position.

Subbass 32′ has 2 volumes.  It plays soft normally.  It switches to loud when Major Bass 16′ is added.

The thin, Germanic Krummhorn can be combined with the Clarinet for the sound of a French Cromorne.

The console is on a rolling platform.  It can also be raised and lowered by means of a hydraulic lift.

Wind pressures (in inches water column):  Great & Swell – 4”, Positif – 3”, Pedal and enclosed Choir – 5”
