Database Manager on May 13, 2009:

Updated through on-line information from Christopher Kiepper. -- The Moller organ at Westminster has undergone major restoration to pipework that collapsed due to inferior metal. We also are in the process of replacing the control system and upgrading the instrument of 30 ranks, over 3 manuals. We removed the grill metal blocking the sound in the chambers and exposed the Great Division pipework. The sound from this organ is absolutely amazing.
