It still sits at the front, right side of the sanctuary beside the chancel steps. The Möller is the first pipe organ, and is a standard stock model “Portable”. It was installed in the rear gallery with a detached console, and was II-manuals, 3-voices, 3 ranks, 19 speaking stops, and 195 pipes. In the 1980's it was enlarged by Harold B. Curryer of Spokane. He added casework to the left side and top of the original Möller case, and added three ranks of pipes: an 8' Principal, a 2' Super Octave, and an 8' Oboe. The number of stop on the Great and Swell remained the same, but the Pedal was enlarged by two stops. The Great 4' Octave Conique borrows its top octave from the 4' Lieblich Flute. The 8' Salicional gets its first 12 notes from the 8' Lieblich Gedeckt, and the balance from the 4' Salicet. The Swell 8' Quint-A is synthetic from the 8' Lieblich Gedeckt and 2-2/3' Nazard. The top 5 pipes of the 4' Lieblich Flute break back to 8' pitch. The Swell 2-2/3' Nazard breaks back to 4' pitch at c# 50, and to 8' pitch at g# 57. The Swell 2' Piccolo breaks back to 4' pitch at g# 45 and then to 8' pitch at g# 57. The Tremolo only affects the original three enclosed ranks. The Pedal 2' Super Octave is from the 4' Octave Conique. Sources: Möller opus list; JRS; extant organ. [Received from James R. Stettner 2012-07-02.]
