M.P. Möller, Inc.

Electro-pneumatic action
2 manuals, 21 stops, 4 ranks


This organ was built by M.P. Möller in 1933 for the "Dockrell Funeral Chapel, New York City." On the Möller Factory Specification (Nov. 20, 1933) the words "Grand Concourse" are penciled in before "New York City," indicating the chapel was in The Bronx. Dockrell had an establishment on Willis Avenue but we have not yet found a Dockrell Chapel on the Grand Concourse. All of the pipes were enclosed in one expression chamber, and the wind pressure throughout was 5". The organ was playble from a detached two-manual console of mahogany, and from an automatic self-player unit. Möller indicated that the organ would be completed by January 1, 1934.
