This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by Tom Fierro, based on personal knowledge of the organ.
In 1987, an unknown builder began a renovation/rebuild of the Moller organ. At that time tonal changes were made, perhaps using the Moller pipe work as a basis. Upper work was added to the divisions, however the rebuild was not successful nor completed at the an enormous expense of the church. In 1993, Robert Lent of Shenandoah Organ Studio was hired to clean-up and finish the rebuild. In approx. 2007, Walker Digital was added to replace the Pedal Division pipes.
