Wawern – De

Organ Company Eduard Sebald of Trier’s Opus 22 is a good example of a caseless organ.

This time, there are no long and winding lines, but a stair-shaped construction with a straight labial distribution of the outer fields of sound. The dummy display pipes huddle against the window. The larger pipes’ copper-colored varnish is a new design.

In bourdon 8’ with its high, half-rounded cutups and its deep mixture, the instrument remains committed to romanticism in terms of sound.

As is evident when looking at the console and the prospect, the initial plans included a two-keyboard-design. Unfortunately, the first keyboard was never built, and its allocated space in the casing was left unoccupied.

The organ received a general overhaul in 2000.
