Notes

  • Identified from the Reuter Opus List, provided by Chris Leaver, Reuter Organ Co., November, 2005. (Database Manager. November 24, 2005)
  • From Brent Johnson, PIPORG-L 14 December 2006: The organ is electro-pneumatic, and the console has a few minor alterations, but otherwise it looks and sounds very much like a Wicks from the same period. (James Cook. December 15, 2006)
  • Updated through online information from R. Joseph Wiessinger. -- Opus #1 of Reuter in Trenton , IL did not burn as has been stated. A storm came through the town and blew a factory wall in on the organ destroying it. Opus #2 was then constructed and is still going strong in Mattoon, IL. (Database Manager. September 1, 2015)
