Restaurierung der Maerz-Orgel (1906) | II/24 | 2006

This instrument was originally built by the well-known Munich organbuilder Franz Borgias Maerz in 1906 with pneumatic action. There was a major rebuild in 1930 with a new swellbox and console being added. Further invasive work followed in 1973, when new high-pitched ranks were added, the action electrified and the original wind system removed.
Our aim in the present renovation/restoration has been to take the instrument as far as possible back to its original state. However, the electric key- and stop- action has had to be retained on grounds of cost and space.
