Located at the Geiranger Church in Norway.The instrument was a gift to the church of a visiting passenger vessel, who had attended a service. It has been there since then (1905). It was recently (May 2016) overhauled, cleaned and tuned up from the original pitch a'' = 435 to a'' = 442 Hz, because of the other instruments in the church (piano and a new pipe organ to come soon) are on 442. It''s been used often! Pitch is A442, bass/treble break is at keys 24/25. Gregorian organs sold in Europe is the same name as Vocalions sold in the United States by subsidiaries of the Aeolian Co.
