Never using a 16' fractional reed when it is the sole reed on a manual implies that there are situations you might use it were it not the sole reed on a manual. If you could tell us what the latter situations might be we may be able to provide some for the former.

Getting the choir on-side is obviously an astute political move but who knows how many of the congregation might have been looking forward to the original choice.
