STENTOR ORGAN

Manual VI

 

The Stentor Division was intended to be a large manual and pedal division consisting of high-pressure diapasons and reeds.  It was to be installed on the fifth floor above the String organ but was never realized. The Stentor keyboard is in operation and all floating divisions and percussion instruments can be played from it.  In addition, several important solo voices are now available independantly on the Stentor Manual, using some of the previously blank Stentor stop tabs.
