See the stop list of the instrument as built
This was the contract's stop list, as signed in December, 1920, and published in The Organ of July, 1921. There were to be some 3,900 pipes. However, during the ten years it took to construct the instrument, the following alterations were made:
Solo: Quintaton added. Viole d'Orchestre replaced by 'Cello Celestes. Salicetina replaced by Piccolo Harmonique (formerly on Swell). Three enclosed tubas replaced by Orchestral Oboe, French Horn, and Orchestral Trumpet.

Swell: Open Diapason and Principal replaced by Geigen Diapason and Octave Geigen respectively. Echo Gamba and Voix Celestes replaced by Echo Viole and Viole Celeste respectively. Although these alterations may have been merely name changes, it is worth noting that all four stops have a considerable amount of edge tone - suggesting that there was a tonal change too. Harmonic Piccolo replaced by Vox Humana.

Great: Bourdon, Tenth, second Twelfth, and second Fifteenth added. Flute Ouverte (open) replaced by Flute Couverte (stopped). Later, the department was divided, with the second division being transferable onto the Choir manual.

Choir: Viola and Sylvestrina added. Stopped Diapason replaced by Cor de Nuit. Cor de Nuit Celestes added. Principal replaced by Gemshorn. Twelfth and Fifteenth discarded. Three-rank Cornet split into Nazard, Octavin, and Tierce.

Pedal: Double Open Diapason (metal) replaced by Double Open Bass (wood). Contra Basso made of metal, instead of wood. Seventeenth, Nineteenth, and Twenty-Second added. Reeds arranged 32-16 and 16-8, instead of 32-16-8 and 16.
