Organ n. 13 | The Gethsemani  Church accompaniment organ in Jerusalem

The Gethsemani Church accompaniment organ in Jerusalem
This church, otherwise called Church of All the Nations, is located in front of the Gethsemani Garden, in the Cedron valley, between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives. A new organ made by the Austrian organ-builder Rieger in 2014 replaces the old small organ built almost 40 years before by the late Brother Delfino Taboada, head of the organ workshop at the Saint Saviour Monastery in the Old City of Jerusalem until his death in 2000(see below the article in the Dismantled Organs section). The new organ is larger than the previous one: it has 13 stops on two manuals and one pedal. Transmission is electric and fully controlled by a Rieger computer.
