Organ no. 4  |  Organ of the Saint Saviour Franciscan monastery in Jerusalem

This organ is one of the newest in Israel. It stands where the Italian organ by Tamburini was
standing before, at the end of the church of St Saviour monastery in the Old City of
Jerusalem. The Tamburini organ, enlarged and renewed by the late Brother Delfino
Taboada, was one of the most beautiful instruments in the Middle East.
The new organ has been made by the Austrian organ-builder Rieger, the same firm
which built the new organs of the Holy Sepulcher, the Nativity church in Bethleem
and the Anglican St Georges cathedral in the last thirty years.
This organ is also the biggest and the most modern of all, as far as its technology is
concerned. It has 44 stops on three manuals and a pedal, and a computer allows 1000
pistons, sequencing, automatic memory replay and other features.
The organ stands exactly where the previous one was, on the wall behind the choir,
hidden somehow behind the decorative façade.
Another important feature: the organ has two consoles : one on the church floor,
with electric connection, and the other enclosed in the upper part of the organ with
mechanic connection.
The new Rieger organ was inaugurated in 2008. A series of concerts marked this
event, with the participation of resident organists A.Pierucci and Anne Laurent
together with the Italian organists E. Zanovello, P. Comparin and L. Signorini
