Notes

  • Identified through information in List of More than 5200 Moller Pipe Organs (Hagerstown, Maryland. M. P. Möller, 1928). (Database Manager. October 30, 2009)
  • Updated through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. March 16, 2010)
  • Updated through online information from Ron Yeater. -- This organ, although it has had considerable tonal updating, still utilizes the original F&V windchests! Moller rebuilt the organ when the congregation moved from its former Washington Ave. location. The Farrand & Votey was the first electro-pneumatic organ in St. Louis. (Database Manager. March 29, 2012)
  • This was a rebuilt and enlargement of the 1893 Farrand & Votey; the organ was moved to the Chapel at the current location in 1949 and then enlarged and moved into the new church in 1951; a new Moller console was added in the early 1960's. (Jeff Scofield. June 7, 2019)
