Bakker & Timmenga organ for sale

wommels01 250x286In 1904 the Dutch organ builder Bakker & Timmenga built this beautiful organ for the Reformed church of Wommels (NL).

The organ was enlarged in 1916 and in 1951 the organ was restored by Bakker and Timmenga. In 1971 the organ was restored by Fonteijn and Gaal. The church is closed since 2014 and the historic Jacobi Church is at the moment the only church of the Protestant Church in Wommels.

The organ is almost entirely in original condition. It is a stylish and characteristic instrument of a very high quality. The sound can be described as beautiful and authentic.

The price is certainly interesting for a motivated buyer: we are pleased to inform you. For the Protestant Church of Wommels it is very important that this beautiful, distinctive and valuable organ will get a good ‘second life’, preferably in a church and a congregation that will use the organ frequently.

Of course, the organ must skillfully dismantled and relocated. Van den Heuvel Orgelbouw has much experience in this field and signed an exclusive contract with the church wardens of Wommels to find a good destination for the organ and to arrange the transfer. Dismantling, repair and restoration work as well as the re-installation and further completion of the historic organ, etc. will also be conducted by J.L. van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw. The costs of these activities depend on the specific needs of the client.
