  1. If memory serves, the choir seats (and all the seats on the stand) have deep red velvet upholstery, and the pipes for the organ are behind the honeycomb grates above the choir seats.

    • The pipes are indeed behind the honeycomb grille. The benches on the stand (and congregation) are more of a purple color than red, but it’s very possible that they have been changed multiple times during remodels.
