Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The specification was for the rebuilding of E M Skinner 1930 4/50 Op. 784, including 56 new/replacement ranks and a new console.
Updated through on-line information from Chad Boorsma. -- This instrument had a more classic design and included a new Positiv division, being displayed in open cases installed on either side of the chancel arch. The cases were built by Möller to match the 1929 American Seating Company cases built for the 1929 Skinner organ.
According to the builder's web site, the organ was damaged but not destroyed in the 1988 fire. Skinner and Moller pipework retained in the Muller Organ.
Identified through information adapted from E. M. Skinner/Aeolian-Skinner Opus List, by Sand Lawn and Allen Kinzey (Organ Historical Society, 1997), and included here through the kind permission of Sand Lawn:
Rebuild of E. M. Skinner Opus 784 (1929) with new console and 56 new ranks; destroyed by fire, 1988.
