Updated by Charles Kegg

This new organ replaced a Moller from the 1970s, which was also placed behind the Felgemaker case. The case pipes were not speaking in the Moller installation. The new Kegg organ uses the center 17 facade pipes as the bass of the otherwise new Great 8\' Diapason. All other materials in the organ are new. No other parts of the Felgemaker organ have survived.
