Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- This was one of Möller's finest and most progressive instruments for its time. The manual divisions were all straight and the Pedal division featured a complete independent Principal chorus, including a IV Fourniture. It was replaced by 4/95 Casavant Op. 3584 in 1984 and sold to Williams Memorial UMC in Texarkana, Texas, where it received a new Möller console. The Casavant retained only the Möller's Flute Celeste and Clarinet. (Database Manager. April 29, 2007)
  • Updated through information from Stephen Schnurr: Replaced Möller Opus 1986. (James Cook. May 28, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from John McCraney. -- On one of the Aeolian-Skinner database websites about two years was a proposed stoplist for St. Paul's. According to this site, the church employed a new organist who was not satisfied with the specification, but Aeolian-skinner would apparently make no or not enough changes, so the church went to Moller. (Database Manager. December 20, 2013)
