Notes: The organ was rebuilt by Möller as Op. R-669 in 1961 and 1963, enlarged to 64 ranks with a new three-manual console; additions included Antiphonal and Positiv divisions. It was rebuilt by Kinzey-Angerstein as Op. R10 in 1976. The Skinner chassis and some pipework remain; the organ now has 67 ranks.
