Database Manager on February 21, 2016:

Updated through online information from Timothy Olsen.
The key action was regulated and lubricated with graphite by Flentrop in 2013. The key action is very sensitive and responsive. This organ was actually the first full-size instrument by Flentrop in America, just months before the Harvard 1957 Flentrop in the Busch-Reisinger Museum.

Updated through online information from David Poile.
This organ was built for Salem College under the recommendations of Margaret S. Mueller, who met Dirk Flentrop in 1956 while studying in Europe under a Fulbright Scholarship. It was originally installed in the college chapel (Moravian College Chapel) and in 1965 was moved to the studio of John Mueller.
