    NOTES
    From a YouTube video posted by the owner: “During the summer of 2004 as part of their
    summer vacation, Ed and John assisted by John's brother Jim and a core of church vol-
    unteers at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, Spring Lake, NJ, the original home of
    the Reuter Opus 1087 (1954), began the ambitious task of moving this magnificent in-
    strument to its new home in Boynton Beach FL. In its original configuration at St.
    Andrews the organ played as a unit organ of six ranks all enclosed. The church was
    in the process of procuring a new electronic organ; the original curator of the in-
    strument, Don Davett (one of the original organists at Radio City Music Hall),
    negotiated the exchange between the church and the new owner.
    
    The organ in its new location played for the first time on Easter Sunday 2005 and
    has been a source of much delight to the owner and their many musically talented
    friends who have given concerts on the instrument. The organ now plays in two
    divisions and has been expanded to ten ranks with the addition (in the Swell) of
    a Vox Humana (originally a part of the Austin (Opus 794) at St Aidans, Jersey City,
    NJ), 4' Flauto Traverso (originally Austin organ opus 1148), 16' Fagotto (12 pipes),
    and (in the Great) 4' Octave, 2' Fifteenth, 16' metal Bourdon (12 pipes).”
