Database Manager on July 07, 2018:

Updated by Austin Ferguson, who has heard or played the organ.

I-m the current organist at Vasa and the organ has been restored recently to original condition. It is a fine instrument, well-voiced for the room it sits in. The 20-note set of chimes came from an earlier organ (no information known) and were made by Deagan; they were incorporated into the new Möller instrument.
