It was removed in 1973 when the Co- Cathedral purchased a used M.P. Möller from First Congregational Church in Billings when they acquired a new Holtkamp organ. The Morton was sold to Atonement Lutheran Church in Billings, but has since been removed from that church as well. The used 1928 Möller from First Congregational was installed in the rear gallery with the Great on the right in a newly-built chamber, and the Swell on the left in the original chamber. The Great expression louvers open into the nave, but no egress directly to the gallery. The Swell louvers open into the gallery, but no direct egress into the nave. A hole had been cut into the side of the Great enclosure to allow the organist and choir to better hear the Great, but this reduced the effect- iveness of the Great expression. The Swell 4' Octave and 2' Fifteenth were added and are not original.
