Database Manager on October 01, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- At the time of this posting (9/30/07) the organ is actively for sale on e-bay. It was removed by Columbia Organ Works in early June of this year and is in storage in their shop. The Great and Pedal were exposed in a functional display in the rear gallery on the central axis of the building. The Swell was enclosed to the right with expression shutters facing both into the gallery and into the nave. The Trompete Real (en chamade) was mounted to the gallery rail. Wind pressure was 3". The organ console shell was painted the same color green as the trim in the chapel. The Möller is being replaced by a new pipe organ, builder as yet unknown.
