This instrument (Opus 78, 97 ranks, 63 stops) consists of five divisions: Great (above, center), Positive (below, on the railing), Brustwerk (center, below Great), Swell (invisible, center, in an expression chamber behind Great) and Pedal (side towers).

At the time, this was the largest instrument (in total number of pipes) designed by Mr. Fisk, and the last large instrument over which he exerted total tonal control.
