Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Tonal changes to existing 1935 M. P. Möller. (Database Manager. November 25, 2006)
  • Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. (Database Manager. June 27, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Sean M. Haley. -- The work by Curryer was carried out in the late 1970's or very early 80's and consisted of only one minor tonal change. The Swell 8' Geigen Principal was shifted up to 4' pitch making it available on the Great at 4' and 2' for needed upper work instead of at 8' and 4' as built originally by Moller. The bass pipes were stored above the chamber in the tower blower room and were present in 1999. (Database Manager. March 17, 2012)

    NOTES
    The organ is installed in the rear gallery in a chamber on the left side (when facing
    the back). The console is in front of the chamber with the organist facing across the
    rear gallery – altar to the right side.
    
    In the 1980's, then Möller Rep. Harold B. Curryer of Spokane removed the original 8'
    Violin Diapason (which was stored in the organ) and replaced it with a new Moller 4'/2'
    Principal unit. The oversight to this tonal change is that the Great now has no 4' 
    Octave, but has a 2' Fifteenth; and the 4' Principal is on the Swell. The added Great
    Unison ON/Off was added to the top right Great keycheek and is not available on combin-
    ations.
