  • The organ was originally built for the Presbyterian Church in Chester, New Jersey. It was for sale through the Organ Clearing House in 1996. Compass 56/20. The organ was purchased intact with working feeder bellows by Anthony Meloni in 1998 and was stored in Port Chester, New York until a new home was found. An identical organ, Odell Opus 80 (with one less stop), was restored by Anthony Meloni in 1990 for the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Manassas, Virginia. Opus 76 looks identical to Opus 80, and contains one more stop, 8' Keroulophone (TC). (James Stettner. October 18, 2019)
