In 2014 Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw bought two major Flentrop organs of the Protestant Church in Amsterdam. The organ of the Woestduin Church (later named James Chapel) was recently sold to a beautiful church in Krakow.
The organ will be completely renovated and installed in 2015. The project's consultant is the famous Polish organ consultant/organist Daniel Prajzner.
The famous organ of the Vijverwegkerk (Radio Bloemendaal) was purchased by Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw last year. The organ gets a new home in Siegburg, Germany.
The organ will be fully restored and expanded with a Prestant 16 on the pedal. Also some other stops will be changed. Manfred Schwartz, official organ consultant for the Evangelical Churches in Rhineland, has been appointed as consultant.
The delivery will take place in 2015.
The De Jongh-organ (1975, 6 I/P) of the Christian Reformed Church in Vianen was renovated last October. Works included a complete re-voicing, also the Mixtuur 2sterk 1' was replaced with a Nasard 2 2/3'. The scaling of the Octaaf 2' was made progressive by adding pipes of the Mixtuur. Finally a Tremulant was added.
Manuaal: Prestant 4', Holpijp 8', Roerfluit 4', Nasard 2 2/3' (2014), Octaaf 2'.
Pedaal: Subbas 16'.
Pedaalkoppel , tremulant (2014).
The Netherlands Reformed Congregation of Opheusden is building on the site of the actual church, a new church with 1.900 seats designed by Van Beijnum Architects. The organ was dismantled in September by Van den Heuvel and stored.
The two-manual 29 stop organ built by Van den Heuvel was inaugurated in March 2002.
In the new church a Rugpositif (3rd manual) and an open wooden Quint 10 2/3 on the pedal will be added.
Also, the pulpit, the lectern and font of our own design will be crafted by us.
The aim is to deliver the organ by the end of 2015.
