Organ no. 2 | The choir organ of the Holy Sepulchre church

The choir organ built in 2014 by the Austrian firm Rieger in the lateral chapel of the Holy Sepulchre church in Jerusalem replaces a very old Italian organ made by the organ-builder Tamburini. It had become very hard to play and almost impossible to tune, mostly because it had been built almost roofless and hundreds of pigeons had settled inside for many years.

Its distribution is the same as its predecessor, 15 stops on two manuals and one pedal. Also like the Tamburini, the new organ is connected to the common console built in 1982 by Rieger to enable the organist to play simultaneously on both the organs of the church, or separately, if he (she) wishes so.
