Notes:The organ retained most of the pipe work from the Haskell organ it replaced. Möller added a new console in 1962 and another new console in 1973, when it was rebuilt as Op. R-871 with ten new ranks. The organ now has 51 ranks, so it would seem that a few other ranks found their way into the organ along the way.
