Opus 78 (2023)

Following the completion of previous instruments inspired by the Schnitger School (Opus 44, 46, 64 and 72), this organ will have 11 speaking stops. The main construction timber for casework, bellows, soundboards, key-frames, pedalboard and roller-boards will be quarter-sawn white oak. The organ will be finished with hand-carved oak pipe-shades and appropriate case decoration. Keyboards, pedalboard, action, soundboards, wooden pipes and all casework will, as usual, be made "in house".
