  • Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. (Database Manager. January 12, 2009)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. July 17, 2009)
  • Updated through online information from Connor Annable. (Database Manager. January 3, 2011)
  • Updated through online information from David Bohn. -- Trechterregal 4' replaced with Voix Celeste 8'; alteration at unknown date by unknown hand. (Database Manager. April 26, 2014)
  • Updated through online information from Shawn P. Keith.
    The Choir 8' Gemshorn does not consist of the original Moller pipework, current pipes are of an unknown builder. The Choir 1-1/3' Larigot is not the original pipes either; they are contrived of a similar vintage Moller 4' Spitzflote placed on the chest beginning with 1-1/3'G, probably somewhat broader in scale from the original pipes. The Swell 4' Trichterregal was replaced by a Voix Celeste of older pipes, a dubious tonal match at best. At some point an unknown builder added a high-quality European-built 16' Trumpet behind the facade, 73 pipes on a single unit chest, notes 1-12 half-length. As of October 2016 the instrument is for sale. (Database Manager. October 26, 2016)
  • At some point the treble of the Great Spitzflöte was exchanged with the Choir Larigot. All original pipes were retained, however much revoiced. The Choir Gemshorn was rescaled by a few notes of new bass pipes. The original tenor C of the Gemshorn was pressed into service as tenor C of the Swell Celeste, the rest of that set being of Wangerin / Jerome Meyer origin." (Christoph Wahl) (Steven E. Lawson. March 19, 2017)
  • This organ has been broken up for parts, and the building is about to be torn down. (Christoph Wahl) (Steven E. Lawson. March 19, 2017)
  • Updated by Don VerKuilen, who has heard or played the organ.
