Thanks !

I think I remember what it is. A Klais-renovated organ where some famous German organist recorded Bach's musical offering (organ solo transcription). That was some time ago already.

I visited a very small Danish island Orø
It had a small church with an even smaller organ. ;)
Build in 1978 at Fyns Orgelbyggeri (Funen Organbuilder).

As usual in Denmark, both church and organ are in a good condition.
For comparison sake, here are a couple of pictures of another modest, but pretty good countryside organ in... France...

Given the amount of dust, I guess it is no longer played, which is the prelude to total functional loss.

Oh, that is the last prelude I would want to listen to...

Sad to see such a beautiful old instrument in such poor condition.

A quick shot for Airy and Frank :)

I think I have seen this Organ before. Is it the one on the "Kreuzberg" in Bonn? At the "Heilige Stiege"?
