Our Marcussen organ boasts a modest, classical specification, ideal for the performance of Baroque music. It is designed on the Werk-Prinzip which, simply, encases each division of the organ in its own, roofed cabinet, which effectively projects the sound outward into the building.
It’s construction is of the very highest quality, visibly and tonally:-witness the fact that it has never had to be tuned since its installation, with the inevitable exception of the reed stops (Krumhorn & Fagot) which are designed to be easily adjusted by the organist! And it is a delight to play – though much less forgiving of the player’s imperfections than more romantic instruments.
