Notes

  • Identified by Jeff Scofield through information in Möller factory documents. (Database Manager. October 7, 2007)
  • Updated through on-line information from Richard C Greene. -- Rebuild of (or possibly a replacement for) Opus 8968 (ca. 1958). (Database Manager. January 11, 2009)
  • Updated through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- The organ is installed in a side gallery of the rectangular room. The choir seating used to be stepped down from gallery to floor level, with console on the main floor level. That area was rebuilt to become an actual gallery. It was perhaps at this time that the drawknob console was dropped during moving and damaged beyond repair. The damaged console was replaced in 1989 by a new Holtkamp-style console as Möller Op. M-6311. (Database Manager. January 23, 2009)
  • Updated through on-line information from Richard C Greene. (Database Manager. February 27, 2009)
  • Rebuilt by Létourneau in 2019. (Jeff Scofield. June 28, 2019)
