Jim Stettner on August 08, 2021:

Updated through online information from Dr. Warren D. Hood, II. -- Peoples Congregational UCC in Washington DC has a 1991 Moller 3/50 instrument and I’m interim O/Ch there. When the organ was installed, preparations were made for a 73 note Harmonic Flute for the Great. Some years after the installation, funds were given and the pipes were installed. It now plays at 8’ & 4’ on the Great. This makes the organ now a 3/51 instrument.
