Wuppertal – New Reformed Church

Renovation of the Peter organ (1968) | III/31 | 2021

Planned completion 2021

After the church, dedicated in 1858, was radically altered in the 1960 with the insertion of a new ceiling, Willi Peter of Cologne provided the present organ in neo-baroque style in 1968.

In the course of a renovation of the interior planned for 2021, we are to overhaul the windchests and console, bring the electric systems up to the latest standard and instal an electronic setter system. There is to be a new blower motor, bellows will be checked, seals renewed and the whole wind system stabilised. On the tonal side there will be intensive voicing adjustment to achieve more gravity, fullness and character, as well as balance between registers. At the same time the Pommer 16 on the Hauptwerk will be rebuilt as a Bordun.
