Database Manager on October 13, 2017:

Updated by Steven Bartley, who maintains the organ.

The organ appears to be all new with no holdover from the previous Moller. Because of its large size and very limited space and poor lighting, the instrument is difficult to properly maintain.
The Organ has a good location into which it can speak into the sanctuary, though the acoustics are very dry. This combined with the small pipe scales and timid tonal foundations, typical of Moller during this period, the overall tone is top heavy.
