Organ nb. 29 | Organ at the Lutheran church of Bethlehem

The German organ-builder Dinse of Berlin constructed and installed this organ in 1893. It was unplayable for many years. In 1999 The Evangelical Lutheran Church decided to rebuild it and called the American organ maker Roland Rutz. This firm modified the old pneumatic instrument from top to bottom, electrified it and equipped it with a computer. While reusing some of the mechanisms and the majority of the stops of the old organ, Rutz also replaced a great number of pipes and made several manual stops accessible from the pedal. The organ’s 26 stops are only 16 ranks. The organ has a MIDI interface, allowing actual performances to be recorded. The organ is placed on a gallery above the entrance door. It was inaugurated again in Christmas 2000.
