Accompaniment organ of the Basilica of St. Stephen Jerusalem

Organ n. 14 

The choir organ of the Saint Stephen Basilica belongs to the order of the Dominicans. It was constructed in 1900 by the Austrian firm of Matthaus Mauracher & Sohne of Salzburg. It is of considerable dimensions: approximately 4 meters wide by 2 meters deep and more than 5 meters high. The instrument is placed on the floor between 2 load-bearing columns and separates the nave from the deambulatorium. The console turns its back to the organ, with a pneumatic connection.

The organ case is made of varnished red oak. The register of Principal is placed on the facade with the distribution 3-5-3-9-3-5-3. Above the organ case, and by extension of the elements 5, 9, and 5 are found 3 decorative boards. The boards on the left and on the right, dominated by triangular capitals decorated with lilies, contain an emblem representing palm branches interlaced with swords above which is a crown. The central board, higher than the two others, has 19 Principal 8' pipes in the interior of an arch: it is dominated by a molding of chevrons and lilies. Along the facade runs a small balcony in the same wood.
The organ has currently fallen into disrepair and is not operational.
