Walferdange – Lu

Built in 1968, this instrument is the last one made by the old management of fabrique d´orgues luxembourgeoise s.à r. l. and a late example of the use of cone valve chests with electro-pneumatic action.

Afterwards, the era Westenfelder began in Lintgen, marking the use of slider chests and mechanical action.

The organ is composed of three divisions, which are located on both sides of the gallery. Viewed from the nave, the left side contains the great organ and the pedal reed voices. The right side contains the swell division, the flue pedal voices and the console. A second console is located near the altar.

Some voices, especially the basic ones, were taken over from the previous instrument, created by Voit and Sons of Durlach in 1910.

During the organ’s great cleaning and maintenance in 2001, two registers from the swell division were replaced. Instead of tuning pitch 8’ and gemshorn 4’, coelestis 8’ and bassoon pipe 16’ are now available.
