Notes:

1. Despite appearance to the contrary, this is a reed organ with a distinguished heritage, and works quite well.

2. The worn foot pedals give indication of many years of committed service, and the inscription on the frame of the pedals guaranteeing the organ to be mouse proof denies the allegations that the church mouse doesn’t exist.

3. The window depicting the Patronal Saint makes one think he may have been an organist!

4. Greenspond’s location of this exposed island led to the establishment of extensive fortication as a defence against potential French invaders.
