Allemagne XVII ème siècle

The organ is housed in a rectangular softwood case with six gilt wood panels set into the four sides. The keyboard has forty-nine keys and there are six stops. The larger ranks of pipes are mounted diagonally within the case and two leather straps are pulled to pump the organ. The instrument has three music racks that fold up from the top of the instrument, one for the keyboard player, and one on either side of the instrument to be used by singers or instrumentalists in the performance of chamber music.
