This organ was built in 2010 by the Manufacture d'Orgue Thomas (Belgium), in the Thuringe style, whose principal characteristics are 'gravity' and 'emotion'. Different concerts and masterclasses are held periodically throughout the year.
DescriptionThe organ is tuned at 415 to match the temperament of the Schlick organ. It is comprised of 2 keyboards with 56 keys each, and a pedal of 30 notes, 18 ranks for 29 registers. Dominique Thomas uses the system of stops called 'baladeurs'; a process which lets a player use an organ with 18 stops as if it contained 29! The instrument was created according to criteria established from a study of organs built or modified in the 18th century, under the direction of J-S Bach.
