Notes: This was a somewhat unusual installation, what with the Rohrbordun, Erzähler and Bombarde at home in the Pedal and duplexed to the manuals instead of vice versa. Aeolian-Skinner made it very plain in their stop list presentation in the April 1959 The Diapason that "the organ was designed by H. Leroy Baumgartner, organist and choirmaster of the church, associate professor of the theory of music at Yale University and noted composer. Professor Baumgartner spent several years developing the scheme for this instrument and provided detailed instructions for its construction, which included drawings specifying the placement of the controls of the console."
