Peace Lutheran Church, Plymouth, MN. Originally a tracker organ by Marklove, this organ had found its way to Peace with some pedal stops from First Presbyterian in Rochester (Reuter). We found some pipes were missing, many pipes were leaning, voicing was desperately needed, an added Trumpet was too loud for the rest of the organ, and an 8' Musette was out of character. Perhaps most distressing was the 19th Century penchant for common bass in the bottom octave, which in the Swell was highly noticeable.
