MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS 

Lord of the Mountains is extremely fortunate to have a 1984 Model 200 Bösendorfer  piano.

Additionally, we have three octaves of Schulmerich English handbells

We also have three upright pianos and a M. P. Möller Pipe Organ.

About Our Pipe Organ

M. P. Möller Pipe Organ opus 11659
 
Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church, Dillon, CO

M. P. Möller was a prolific American organ builder (over 11,000 instruments) located in Hagerstown, Maryland from 1875 to 1992. The company was founded in 1875 by Danish immigrant, Matthias Peter Möller in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.  Möller organs could be found in thousands of churches of all denominations, school, concert halls, private residences and movie theaters. The largest Möller church organ (as a single new instrument) is the one installed in Calvary Church, Charlotte, North Carolina, Opus (serial number) 11739, completed in 1990.

Möller did not utilize solid-state electronics for console components and other innovations; so the LOTM organ had a solid-state system installed by Rocky Mountain Pipe Organ Services in 2010. One memorable example of Möller's product are the two instruments at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., recently rebuilt by Goulding and Wood. Another large, mostly-Möller instrument is the one in the Cadet Chapet of the United State Military Academy at West Point, New York. The end came in 1992, after a series of labor disputes.  Möller organs were known to be basically well-built.

In 2010, through the recommendation of Director of Music and Organist, Leonard Rhodes, LOTM installed a Wicks CM-100 module. This is controlled through MIDI tabs in the organ console. The CM-100 allows for the simple addition of digital voices controlled by the organ’s stop tabs, as well as through the controls on the front of the device itself.   Developed in Italy for Wicks, the CM-100 contains more than 170 stops, with 78 designed specifically by Wicks based on actual samples of Wicks pipework.
