Organ n. 46 | Lower floor organ of the  Nazareth Basilica

This liturgical organ was installed in the crypt of the Basilica, at the level of the grotto of Joseph and Mary. Despite the small height of this church, the acoustics there is of a rare quality. The organ was made by the Italian organ builder Tamburini.
Unfortunately for the music lover, the organ is enclosed in two separate rooms adjoining the church and the volume is greatly diminished. In fact there are two organs, with two blowers, which are controlled by a single console (there is no actual case). The console is placed on a narrow podium at the back of the choir
