Notes: When the independent celeste stops are pulled, the parent rank is also drawn. Drawing any Echo stop cancels the sounding of any Solo stop, except for the Tuba Mirabilis. For further in-depth information on the organ, as well as an excellent chance to hear the organ at its best, you should purchase the JAV recording of Paul-Martin Maki.
