J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw 1967-1997

The CD Features a 36-page full colour booklet, with specifications, discriptions and photographs of 11 of the finest Van de Heuvel instruments. They include the sensational organ for St. Eustache, Paris, together with the magnificent 32' organs at Nieuwe Kerk, Katwijk aan Zee; Victoria Hall, Geneva and St. Franziskus, Munich. Also included are Van den Heuvel organs at the Duke's Hall (Royal Academy of Music) in London, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and six other organs in Holland.

"Die Interpretation bewegt sich auf einem niveau, das man auf ein jubiläumsgaben selten antrifft... mach er im Umgang mint den Klangressourcen der Großartigen Orgel nich Organistenträume wahr...? Diese Veröffentlichung is für den Freund guter Orgel-CDs ein Fest" [ORGEL INTERNATIONAL march 1998]

The early instruments show already a striking distinction in sound with the prevailing neo-baroque conceptions at the beginning of the seventies. The valuable and approved technical building principles from the earlier glorious period of Dutch organ building were indeed applied by Van den Heuvel, concerning the point of sound however, he gradually went a different way, which was increasingly influenced by the symphonic aesthetics from the great French organbuilder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. Jan L. van den Heuvel designed for each of his organs its own sound character and personally provided the voicing.

The organs on the celebration CD represent the different artistic stages in de 30 years existence of the Van den Heuvel company. The different instruments are a resounding example of the development, that the organbuilder in this period has gone through. A development, that hasn't reached an end and undoubtedly shall continue in the future

On behalve of the various international organists, that have cooperated with great enthusiasm on the realization of this sound document, I would like to congratulate the brothers Jan and peter van den Heuvel on their Anniversary and wish that even more magnificent instruments may be added to their opuslists in the future.

Yerseke, Netherlands Reformed Congregation (42/III/P, 1984) http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/395-gereformeerdegemeenteyerseke-en.html http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/395-gereformeerdegemeenteyerseke-en.html Yerseke, Netherlands Reformed Congregation (42/III/P, 1984)

The church of the Netherlands Reformed Congregation was built in the sixties of last Century. Around 1980 this organ had had it's best times and the decision was made to build a new organ. At the time the organ contract was awarded to Van den Heuvel there were serious proposals to build a complete new church in a traditional architecture. Due to this Van den Heuvel was asked to present a traditional organ case design including wood carvings. In the early eighties however it was decided to enlarge the present building to give place to approximately 1.500 people. Unfortunately the accoustic conditions are not good since......but since 2012 there are proposals worked out to build a complete new church with a seat capacity of approximately 1.800.....

The Van den Heuvel organ in Yerseke has three manual divisions of 56 notes and a pedal of 30 notes. The Rugpositief has 9 stops, the Hoofdwerk 14 stops, the Zwelwerk 11 stops and the Pedaal 8 stops, altogether 42 stops. No stops of the old organ were used. The inauguration took place on July 12th 1984 by Klaas Jan  Mulder.

Some pictures of the final assembly in the church:









The internal layout of the instrument is almost clear when you have a look at the front picture. The Rugpositief (Choir) is situated in the small case on the gallery, the Hoofdwerk (Great) in the center, behind the Hoofdwerk is the Zwelwerk (Swell) situated and on each side of the Hoofdwerk the Pedaal (pedal). The console and all the action is made in Classical Dutch style. Almost all the wood work (pipes and organ cases) is made in magahony. The wood carvings are fashioned from Frenchlinden wood. The mouth of the display pipes are gold plated. The sound combines elements of both Dutch and French styles. This instrument is only used for accompanying the singing of great congregations as is typical in this well knowb fishermen village in the south of Holland.
