Source: The Diapason, July 1929.

Notes: The organ was replaced by a Holtkamp in 1981 and was purchased by the Cathedral of the Advent, Birmingham AL, for use in their future new organ - which eventually became Moller Op. 11770 in 1988. The Moller also included pipes from Aeolian-Skinner Op. 851 (Trinity College, Hartford) in addition to pipe work from the Cathedral's former organs.

The keyboards and pedal board from the Montevallo organ were used by the Bishop Organ Co. in the 1997 rebuild of a Roy Carlson organ at Centre Congregational Church in Lynnfield MA.
