from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In organ-building, a section of the instrument, containing very delicate stops, inclosed in a thick swell-box, which is often placed at a distance from the rest of the organ, so as to be capable of echo or distant effects. Sometimes the echo-organ has a keyboard of its own in the console, but often it is played from either the swell or the choir keyboard through a special mechanism.
