Groot-Ammers, Dutch Reformed Church (44/III/P, 1981)

Groot-Ammers, Dutch Reformed Church (44/III/P, 1981) Maarten Rog

1970 Pels & Van Leeuwen built a two manual organ with 25 stops. The organ was inaugurated on October 29, 1970. Consultant was Frans van Tilburg. The organ was a gift by Bas Broere. The organ was not completed at the moment it was inaugurated. In March 29, 1972 a second inauguration took place with a concert by Frans van Tilburg.

On request of Jan Stolk Van den Heuvel revoiced the organ in 1978. Also a part of the pipe work was replaced and the wind system completely changed. Again Bas Broere was able to provide the financial consequences of the works. In Spring 1979 the renewed instrument was taken into sevices.

To provide more posibilities for the french romantic music it was decided to expand the organ with an additional manual. This third manual possess 19 stops and was completed in 1981. The costs of this addition were carried by several local bussiness people. The re-inauguration was done by organist Jan Zwanepol on January 24, 1981.

In 2008 the Swell division was cleaned and the bellow releathered due to leakage of the church roof.  The Klaroen 4', for which in 1981 old pipework was used, was replaced by a new reed stop.
