        By the way, I don't know if you are interested, but the stoplist for Virgil Fox's Allen touring organ is available on the Allen Organ Co. website.

        My home organ is a Theatre III with an MDS II MIDI Expander.

          what stops/ranks of Virgil's home organ made it onto the organ at Chrystal Cathedral?

            The stops were from The New Old South Church Boston contracted 1915 and installed roughly 1917-1918 or so. They were never functional and were in the wine cellar under Virgil's drawing room with grating installed in the flooring now owned by and installed in the home of Ray Correll in Ohio. They were largely specialty voices of Skinner like the French Horn which neither the original Ruffatti nor Aeolian-Skinner had and other similar type Skinner specialty voices.The part of the Fox home organ that did work was the Keates of 30 ranks that David Snyder bought as a gift for Virgil for one of his birthdays plus a voxhumana way upstairs that spoke into a resonant stairwell of several stories that served as a resonance chamber.I have been there since the house was purchased and reworked and it was a thrill to see it all including an Olympic swimming pool that Virgil loved and his dining room with double crown molding etc. Nostalgic.

              It's a bit of a shame Virgil didn't put enough solo reeds in the organ.

                So what has happened to this organ over the years? Have it's pipes and ranks been moved to churches somewhere? Or are a lot of them still in there? Where is this organ now? I have the Fox MAster class audio, of which most of that is on this organ, was curious to see what happened to it now.
