Notes

  • Alterations to existing Möller organ of 1948. Identified by Brent Pertusio, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The instrument replaced a previous water-powered Henry Neimann organ, which was probably one of the last instruments the Baltimore organ-builder created.
    In 1988, an 8' hooded Trumpet Royale, 8' Gedackt, 2' Superoctave, and II Mixture were added by Bowders Organ Company, and a set of chimes were restored and moved from the tower into the Great Division. (Database Manager. September 9, 2013)
  • Updated through online information from Brent Pertusio. (Database Manager. October 7, 2013)
  • Updated by Brent Pertusio, who has heard or played the organ. (Steven E. Lawson. May 4, 2017)
