Database Manager on July 23, 2012:

Updated through online information from Christopher J. Hoh. -- When All Souls Unitarian, Washington DC, had a new Rieger built in the late 1960s, this small instrument was used for worship there until the new organ was ready. St. James (now St. Monica and St. James) bought and installed it in their church where it has remained.
