organ nb. 47 | The organ of the Saint Joseph church at Nazareth

The ancient St Joseph church in Nazareth has become today a part of the large compound of the Annunciation Basilica, connected to the Basilica through the Franciscan Monastery. It appears there was no organ in this church in the past. The decision to do so was taken in 2011 when a collect was organized in Austria to allow the replacement of the two organs standing in the Basilica by two brand new ones.

The results of the collect were beyond hope and this is probably the reason why a third organ was ordered to be placed in the small church and used for liturgy there. The organ-builder of the three organs was Rieger, from Austria.

This small accompaniment organ has one manual keyboard with nine stops and a pedal with one stop. The organ stands on the tribune above the main entrance to the church, and nobody has access to it, neither the public nor the organist. The console is located on the floor, near the choir of the church.
The organ has been inaugurated on the 05-12-2012 by the Italian organist Paolo Oreni.

The manual has 56 notes and the pedal 30.
