Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Additions to the existing 1946 M. P. Möller. A case was added atop the original, and an adjunct case was added to the left side as well. New ranks added were an 8' Principal, 2' Super Octave, and unenclosed 8' Oboe. The original console was drastically altered with the rolltop removed, the rolltop guides removed, the keydesk removed on either side of the manuals - resulting in a somewhat Holtkamp or Schlicker-style console.

    NOTES
    This congregation's first organ was a I-manual Estey reed organ with __ stops. 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.
