Notes

  • Southfield Organ Builders of Springfield, Mass., built a new organ in Rutgers Presbyterian Church, installing it in two phases during 2003 and 2005. The four-manual organ has a total of 70 ranks, plus 3 digitals ranks by Marshall and Ogletree. Several ranks from the previous Möller organ, Op. 4276 (1926), were retained and revoiced, and the 1926 Möller drawknob console shell was refitted with upgraded controls and made movable. The new organ was dedicated by Ken Cowan on Sunday, May 22, 2005. (Jeff Scofield. December 27, 2019)
