Database Manager on November 17, 2011:

Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The Möller in what is now Pangle Hall at Lee University was revoiced by Barger & Nix in 2011, which included the 2' Blockflöte in the Swell moving to the Choir and the 2' Principal in the Choir moving to the Swell; First Baptist had nearly doubled the size of the sanctuary before they moved out, so the overall organ wind pressure was raised by Barger & Nix, which particularly helped the bass stops and the Swell reed chorus.

Database Manager on May 18, 2011:

Updated through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- The congregation moved from downtown ca. 2010, at which time the downtown facility was sold to Lee University. The sanctuary will be used as an auditorium for the university and the Möller organ, which was briefly for sale, is being retained.
