Dutch Reformed Church at Ouderkerk aan den IJssel ordered a III/P, 37-stop organ

OuderkerkHHKIn 2016 the “Hersteld Hervormde Kerk” is building a new 900 seat church. The traditional design of this church is made by the well known Dutch architect Marco Born.

The church committee also decided to install a fine pipe organ. Alas many churches are closing in the Netherlands and the best quality organs are quite often sold to Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw. Van den Heuvel (trained by Dirk A. Flentrop) bought the last few years, among other organs, 5 important Flentrop organs, and just purchased a well known Flentrop-organ from the Maranatha-church in Amsterdam. The measures of this organ were suitable for the church in Ouderkerk. The customer however requested Van den Heuvel to make important improvements, alterations and to include additional (wider scaled) stops, as well as a completely new traditional organ case design with wood carvings. The organ has to be delivered in 2017.
