De aula van het huidige Stedelijk Museum te Schiedam was formerly in use by the Walloon Municipality. The building was also known as the Gasthuiskerk because it belonged to the Sint Jacobsgasthuis.

In 1773 Hess constructed an organ for this church. It was inaugurated on september 9, 1773. The organ was played by Joachim Hess, organist of Gouda and by the local organist Hagen jr.

Recently we renovated the organ which was unplayable for several years. Consultant was the well known city organist Arjen Leistra. The works consists of repairs of the two large wedge bellows, cracked wind trunks, optimalisation of the windsupply, restoration of the pipe work and voicing corrections. Also a new humidifier was installed.
