Jeff Scofield on November 08, 2020:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: The organ was originally built in 1964 for Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Beaumont, Texas. When that church closed in 2015, the organ was gifted to Redeemer Lutheran Church in 2016. Meloni & Farrier Organbuilders of Yonkers, N.Y., moved, refurbished, and installed the organ. The original Spanische Trompete was replaced with a new Trompete made by Skrabl Organs in Slovenia. Also added were a Peterson combination action with 64 levels, and a Zimblestern.
