The Completed Organ

Step by step, the 4,000 pipes of the organ are built and installed. All of the details and mechanical devices inside the organ are finished and adjusted, and the woodcarvings are being mounted in the façade. Intensive activity in the Organ Research Workshop and in the church took place during 1999 and simulations of the church filled with people were done in order to experience whether voicing or wind pressure adjustments were necessary. During the Göteborg International Organ Academy, in August 2000, the organ was inaugurated by H.R.H. Princess Desirée.

Listen to and view a part of the inauguration of the North German Baroque Organ in Örgryte Nya kyrka, August 12th 2000
(recorded by Sveriges Television).
