Rijsoord, Dutch Reformed Church (1973)

Organ builder C.G.F. Witte constructed the new organ in 1864. It was an organ with two manuals and a permanentely coupled pedal. The instrument was inaugurated on April 24, 1864 by J.H. Paling of Rotterdam. On March 11, 1923 a fire hit the church and damaged the organ. Sanders restored the instrument.

Standaart worked in the organ in 1929 and replaced the Trompet for a new one. More works were done by De Koff (1951) and A. Verduyn (1957 and 1963), but no major change were carried out.

In 1973 J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw added an independant pedal of two stops to the organ and carried out some maintenance work. Feike Asma performed the re-inauguration recital on Oktober 17, 1973. 1992  the complete organ was dismantled and shipped to the Van den Heuvel in Dordrecht for a complete revision. The Salicet of the second manual was restored to its original pitch of 4'. The organ was re-inaugurated on April 4, 1992.
