Database Manager on March 29, 2008:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Prepared for 3-division, 19-rank Antiphonal; two rare items concerning this organ: It was one of only three 3-manual Möllers with rocker-tablet stop controls; it has a 32' reed - very rare in those days for anything but the larger organs. The console was replaced by Barger & Nix in 2000.
