Walcker Organ St. Antonius Papenburg Planned release Q4 2021.
Description

Almost here: The magnificent Walcker organ of St. Antonius, Papenburg (Germany).

In 2020 the St. Antonius Church in Papenburg, a beautiful neo-Gothic brick hall church built in 1877, has become home to one of the most significant new organ installations in northern Germany in recent years. It is a Walcker organ from 1927 with 99 stops, one of the largest organs in Northern Germany.



The organ today
The organ was completely restored in 2003-2008 by the Seifert company in Kevelaer, based on the original plans from 1927, and then initially put into storage, because during the restoration plans had changed and the organ was no longer to be reinstalled in its original location. In 2018, it was decided to give it to Papenburg for the symbolic price of €1. The costs for the reconstruction of more than €1 million were borne by the church community in Papenburg.

In 2020, the organ was finally consecrated and given its new purpose. The organ has 99 stops, 9 of which are transmissions, distributed over 4 manuals and pedal. 16 stops are found in the former Fernwerk, which was built as a choir organ in the southern side aisle. The main organ is  installed on the western gallery and in four large towers suspended from the ceiling to the left and right of it. The completely new modern console, which is based on historical consoles of the Walcker company, can be moved freely in the church, the choir organ is played from the main console. The extensive stoplist corresponds almost completely to the original stoplist of the concert hall organ.
