Notes: Opus 78 was the largest organ built by the company during Charles Fisk's lifetime, and at the time was the largest tracker organ built in this country in the twentieth century. Temperament is slightly unequal, favoring keys with few accidentals. Two large weighted bellows are under the balcony floor, supplying the organ with air from blowers in a box under the gallery window. Contra Bourdon/ Subbass is on electric action.

Noyes Carillon The Noyes Memorial Carillon at The House of Hope was one of the first churches in North America to have a carillon when the bells were installed in the tower in 1923. House of Hope's carillon is a four-octave, fully chromatic instrument with 49 bells ranging in weight from 11 pounds to 5280 pounds. It operates entirely by mechanical means; that is, each key is connected directly to a bell by means of wires and transmission bars, and the instrument is thereby under the player's complete expressive control.
