  1. Always appreciate your great photos and attention to details. I'm an organist and like seeing photos of the organs and organ consoles when you get the chance. Thanks again.

  2. You are welcome. The same time I took these photos, I got a picture of the organ console. It is here.

  4. The high altar is designed to be convertible between the two orientations. I once watched two priests take about ten or so minutes to adjust the furniture and candlesticks.
