Santa Fe, NM Moller Artiste player organ restoration Private Residence
We have restored a Moller residence organ from 1933 which includes the Moller Artiste player with rolls. This organ was originally 5 ranks plus chimes and installed in a home in Hornell NY. It was prepared on the console and in the original drawing for a Harp and a soft string stop. We have added these using vintage Moller parts including switches to add to the original Moller relay. All additions were made in the locations shown on the original drawing and the organ will be installed in a new space that has been built identical to the original. The organ plays on all restored original electrical control systems. The photo you see is of the organ set up in the Kegg shop. The YouTube video is of the Artiste playing a roll that features the new Harp. This organ was installed in its new home in February 2015.
Our new organ for Bryn Athyn Cathedral was featured on the cover of the December 2014 issue of The Diapason. Please have a look at the article and click below for more information about the instrument. Please be patient as the article is a large file.
