The Trinity Moller is the oldest playable pipe organ in Staunton/Waynesboro/Augusta/Charlottesville/Albemarle in its original location and unaltered tonally or mechanically. Originally hand pumped, an electrically powered blower to provide wind for the pipes was added when Rural Electification came to the area. Nothing else in the church is powered by electricity.
The organ has direct mechanical action linkage (tracker action) connecting manual keys to the pallet valves in the windchest that let air into the pipes. Sliders run at a 90 degree angle, allowing the set of pipes to be selected for playing. The pedal keys play their notes by opening a valve to allow air into copper tubes that run to the pedal chest and operates a valve there that admits air into a pipe. The Tubular system allowed the pedal pipes to be placed in various locations in the chamber as space permitted.
The organ has seven sets of pipes. Each set is called a “stop” because the slider stops the air, or allows it to pass, depending on how the “stop knob” is set:
Great organ (lower keyboard)
Open Diapason 8’ -- 61 open metal pipes that sing “oh” in the bass and “ah” in the treble; loud
The gold pipes in front are the bass pipes of this stop. The remaining pipes are are behind this. Melodia 8’ -- 61 open wood and metal pipes that sing “who” Medium volume Dulciana8’--49openmetalpipesofnarrowscalethatwhisper“eh” Veryquiet
Swell organ (upper keyboard; pipes are in an enclosure with movable shutters for volume control.) Stopped Diapason 8’ -- 61 stopped wood pipes that sing “ooo” medium volume
Vioiln Diapason (sic) 8’ 49 open metal pipes that sing “eee” medium volume
Flauto Traverso 4’ -- 81 open wood and metal pipes that sing “tae” medium volume
Pedal organ (played by the feet)
Bourdon16’--30stopperedwoodenpipesoflargescale. TheysingMMMMMmuchlikethestringbassofthe orchestra. Medium loud.
A “tremulant” applies a violin-like vibrato to the pipes by varying the wind supply.
Couplers that allow one set of keys to play a second or third set with one key.
Swell to Great 8‘ The Great manual also makes the corresponding Swell key go down.
Swell to Great 4‘ The Great manual keys make the corresponding swell keys an octave higher go down.
Swell to Pedal 8’ The pedal also makes the corresponding Swell key play.
Great to Pedal 8‘ The pedal also makes the corresponding Great key play.
When the Swell to Great 4’ and the Great to pedal 8’ are on, the swell also plays in the pedal an octave higher than the sound of the Swell to Great 8. Using multiple couplers makes the touch heavier.
