Dordrecht, Old Reformed Church (1976)

Dordrecht, Old Reformed Church (1976) Maarten Rog

1894 L. Ypma of Alkmaar constructed a new organ for the church of Nieuwediep. Standaart relocated the organ in 1932 in the Old Reformed church of Dordrecht. In 1961 the organ was changed by Verwijs. Pedal stops were added and the Salicionaal, Vox Céleste and Flûte Harmonique 4' were replaced by new stops.

J.L. van den Heuvel rebuilt the organ in 1975. A new console and action were made. Also the organ was enlarged and stops were altered. All the survived Ypma pipework however was retained. The original Cornet was reconstructed from the Mixtuur composed out of Cornet pipes by Verwijs. On December 20, 1975 the organ was re-inaugurated with a concert by André Evera. Church and organ were sold to the Municipality of Dordrecht and are no longer in use.
