Evangelische Kirche, Siegburg (2015)

In 1960 D.A. Flentrop built this 26-stop organ organ for the Reformed church in Bloemendaal. The inauguration took place on December 21st 1960. In 2001 Flentrop restored the instrument. The instrument is well known from the weekly Radio-broadcasting on Sunday. Recently the parish moved to another building.

In 2014 the organ was purchased by J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw b.v. and has found a new good home in the Evangelische Kirche of Siegburg (Germany). The church gallery will be enlarged to accomodate the organ.

The organ was fully restored and enlarged by a Prestant 16' on the pedal. It is placed on new windchests behind the organ with it's own windsupply. Additional offset chest were made for the low 10 pipes of the Subbas. The Fagot was renewed and the Pedal mixtuur replaced with a new Trompet 8'. A complete re-voicing was prepared at the workshop and will be completed on location.

Manfred Schwartz, official organ consultant for the Evangelical Churches in Rhineland, has been appointed as consultant.
