Notes

  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. [Sources: Möller opus list and Knoxville AGO web site] (Database Manager. May 31, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Prepared for 3-division, 19-rank Antiphonal; two rare items concerning this organ: It was one of only three 3-manual Möllers with rocker-tablet stop controls; it has a 32' reed - very rare in those days for anything but the larger organs. The console was replaced by Barger & Nix in 2000. (Database Manager. March 29, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Originally installed with 18 ranks; the prepared-for 18 ranks were added by Möller in 1961; revoicing and some tonal changes made by Barger & Nix in 1984. (Database Manager. April 30, 2012)
