Restoration of important baroque organ in Poland

Restoration of important baroque organ in Poland Click image to enlarge

One of the most important baroque organs in Poland is to be restored by Skrabl. 

The instrument in the 13th century Cathedral of the Assumption in Pelplin was built by Johann Georg Wolff of Gdańsk between1677 to 1680. 

Enlargement and renovation works followed in 1870, 1907 and 1970, leading to the present three-manual, 42-stop, mechanical action organ.

Skrabl's work will involve a thorough cleaning, improvements to the wind system and restoration of some organ parts, including pipes and wind chests.
